On Wednesday, November 1, 2017, 671 Brandon School Division Grade 9 students will job shadow a parent, relative, friend or community host as part of The Learning Partnership’s Take Our Kids to Work Day. The program supports career development by helping students connect school, the world of work, and their own futures by providing them with an opportunity to experience and learn about the world of work as they begin to explore possible career paths and imagine the possibilities!
Over 160 local businesses and organizations will be hosting BSD students. While most students will spend the day with one of their parents, a number of businesses and individuals have volunteered to host students looking for a new experience.
Safety is an important topic and as part of the pre-day preparations for this event, Grade 9 students in the Brandon School Division will have participated in a Workplace Safety and Health presentation delivered by the SAFE Workers of Tomorrow organization. This year SAFE Work Manitoba provided 20 toques to participating schools to distribute to students to promote SAFE work.
The following sites will be hosting 7 or more Brandon School Division Grade 9 students:
Assiniboine Community College;
Brandon School Division;
City of Brandon;
Maple Leaf; and
Prairie Mountain Health.
