The Waterloo Region District School Board is pleased to encourage Grade 9 student participation on Wednesday, November 3, 2021 in Take Our Kids to Work 2021: The Day That Lasts A Lifetime!

Take Our Kids to Work day has a long history of being a successful activity for Grade 9 students in gaining real world experience in the workplace.

This year the WRDSB is supporting a virtual Take Our Kids to Work Day. While acknowledging that an in-person experience is preferable, the WRDSB is joining most school boards in ensuring the health and safety of our students during this time and providing access to a rich experience of workplace exposure through a virtual platform hosted by The Learning Partnership.

The Learning Partnership’s Take Our Kids to Work is an exciting, inspiring event to connect parents/caregivers and their Grade 9 students in a day full of fun and career exploration.

On Wednesday, November 3, 2021, Canada’s longest-running, highest-profile career exploration event is “going virtual” and offering many options including:

  • New, dynamic, inclusive and engaging content for students to participate virtually or in person

  • Opportunity to join other students, parents, educators and workplaces from across Canada in a cornerstone event and a series of live breakout sessions on specific topics, sectors and careers

  • Register for resources, planning guides, workshops and receive access to the cornerstone event and live breakout sessions

For Parents/Caregivers and Students:
