Take Our Kids to Work Day

There have been several questions regarding The Learning Partnership’s Take Our Kids to Work Day (TOKTWD) scheduled for Wednesday, November 4.  In response to the global pandemic and social distancing requirements, this year’s event will be offered virtually with grade 9 students attending school November 4. As in past years, participation in TOKTWD events is encouraged. Schools or teachers may choose to plan their own virtual event using teacher developed career resources or the TOKTWD resources listed below. They may also choose to spread the event out over a number of days. (Live sessions will be recorded and be available on The Learning Partnership’s Take Our Kids to Work Day website.)
