Today is “Take Our Kids to Work Day” across Canada. Take Our Kids to Work is an annual national program where Grade 9 students are hosted by parents, friends, relatives and volunteers at workplaces across the country every November. The program supports career development by helping students connect school, the world of work, and their own futures. St. Michael Catholic High School Student Abbey Gagnon is spending the day at the Juice FM studios.
Employers who register for this program are eligible to apply for the Canada’s Outstanding Employers Award. Take Our Kids to Work began in 1994 in the Greater Toronto area. Today, students across Canada, from Nunavut to Newfoundland participate in the program.
