On November 2, we open our doors to Grade 9 students as a part of Take Our Kids to Work.
The Learning Partnership’s signature program, Take Our Kids to Work is a great way for students across Canada to start planning their future career path, all while discovering more about the work we do.
Be it by seeing our studios, news and control rooms in action, sitting-in on show tapings, learning how to use cameras and read scripts or meeting our hosts, producers, editors, sales and social media experts, etc., the kids who spend the day with us gain insight on both media and workplace skills. And if past experience is any indicator, they’ll have lots of fun along the way.
Since the inception of the Learning Partnership’s Canada’s Outstanding Employer Awards in 2011, CBC Maritimes was a recipient for 2011 and 2012, followed by CBC/Radio-Canada being a recipient in 2013 through 2015 – all in recognition for the way we’ve connected with students during Take Our Kids to Work.
Check out the CBC/Radio-Canada Instagram and Twitter accounts, and follow the hashtags #CBCkidstowork and #RCjeunes for more photos and tweets of the events in Halifax, Ottawa, Toronto, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver, along with unofficial activities likely to take place elsewhere across the country.
