Take Our Kids to Work Day is a national, single day job shadow experience for grade 9 students. Students spend the entire day at the workplace with a parent, relative, or friend to learn more about careers. 2021 has limited in-person opportunities due to the implications of COVID exposures so many businesses have come together to create virtual experiences. Students now have access to a huge collection of careers that touch on many different interests and skills.
