Take Our Kids to Work Day: November 2nd 2016 at Lynch

Lynch is committed to helping educate youth about the world of work. Research suggests that today’s students will have multiple careers over the span of their working years. To be successful, they will need to master both new technologies and complex social and organizational systems.

Take Our Kids to WorkTM is an annual program in which Grade 9 (or equivalent) students are hosted by parents, friends, relatives and volunteers at workplaces across the country every November.

Learning in school becomes more effective and relevant if students can see where their education might lead them in the future. Spending a ‘day in the life’ of a profession or workplace is a fun and fascinating way to explore the world of work, think about career options, and make informed educational decisions.

Each year, Grade 9 students across Canada spend a day job shadowing in the workplace of a parent, relative, or friend. Highlights of this year’s Take Our Kids to Work Day held at Lynch Headquarters included team activities, engineering software training, employee presentations, a tour of our automated facility and a meet and greet with our President.
