The first Take Our Kids to Work event took place in 1994 in the Greater Toronto Area. Since then, The Learning Partnership has expanded the program across the country.  Take Our Kids to Work is now active in all provinces and territories across the country.  Annually, more than 200,000 grade nine students and over 75,000 businesses and organizations nationwide participate in Take Our Kids to Work day.

 * To help students understand the importance of staying in school.
* To help students appreciate a parent's role in making a living and supporting a family.
Today's research suggests that today's students will have multiple careers over the span of their working years.  They will need to master both new technologies and complex social and organizational responsibility in order to succeed in the future. 
High school students generally have limited access to workplaces.  This program was created through the philosophy that awareness leads to knowledge.  The more students understand about the jobs of their parents and relatives, the more informed the decisions about their own future career will be."
