Registration now open for annual Take Our Kids to Work Day

University of Windsor employees may register up to two Grade 9 students to participate in the Take Our Kids to Work Day program to be held on November 14.

Take Our Kids to Work Day is an annual national program of the “Learning Partnership” in which Grade 9 students are hosted by parents, friends or relatives at workplaces across the country. This initiative enhances the student’s understanding of the realities of working life and supports them in exploration and planning of their career paths.

Employees are encouraged to host their son, daughter, niece, nephew, grandchild, or child of a friend or neighbour. The program will offer participants a variety of group activities co-ordinated by faculties and departments, and the opportunity to job-shadow their parent or host for a portion of the day. The detailed agenda can be found on the program website.

Employees who wish to bring a Grade 9 student to campus must complete the online registration form and submit a waiver signed by the child’s parent or guardian no later than October 31.

The Take Our Kids to Work Day initiative is co-ordinated by the Department of Human Resources and made possible by the contributions of campus partners and sponsors.
