Virtual Take Our Kids to Work Day 2020

Attention all Nunavut Grade 9 students, parents, and employers, Take Our Kids to Work Day will take place virtually on Wednesday, November 4, 2020!

Grade 9 students are invited to spend the day virtually in the workplace of a parent, relative, family friend, or volunteer adult to experience and learn about the world of work. Due to COVID-19 health measures, this year’s event can take place by telephone, video chat, or other online platforms.

The Department of Education supports this program with the hope that participating Grade 9 students will:
• start exploring career options in a practical way that compliments their Aulajaaqtut classes;
• understand the importance of staying in school; and
• gain a better understanding of the many career choices open to them.

Some Nunavut schools may observe this activity on a different date to meet their school’s instructional needs.

Online resources for Grade 9 students, parents, workplaces, and educators can be found at https://www.thelearningpartnership.ca/take-our-kids-to-work.
