Take Our Kids to Work Day Nov. 6

Take Our Kids to Work Day is scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 6.

Take Our Kids to Work Day is a national program organized by “The Learning Partnership” where Grade 9 students have the opportunity to job shadow their parent/guardian or sponsor for the day. This program highlights the importance of education, skills development, and training while giving Grade 9 students the opportunity to experience the world of work and the variety of career opportunities available to them.

Queen’s University is once again offering children of Queen’s faculty and staff a special day filled with activities. This year’s schedule of events runs 9:30 am to noon, with career education and resume building workshops, as well as a guided tour of the Arthur B. McDonald Canadian Astroparticle Physics Research Institute. Students and their parent/guardian can also opt to have lunch at Leonard Dining Hall for $5. The campus-led itinerary is optional and provided free of charge, with the exception of the $5 (non-compulsory) lunch. 

Registration is now open. Please provide your completed registration form via email to safety@queensu.ca or in-person at 96 Albert St. The deadline to register is Oct. 30.

Permission from your department head is required on the Take Our Kids to Work Application (HR-FRM-058) in order to participate in the job shadowing portion.
