2018 Take Our Kids to Work Day'

Wednesday, November 14, 2018. 

Smith Gym, Ivor Wynne Centre

The Take Our Kids to Work Day program builds on the commitment of building a Brighter World by taking a collaborative approach to cultivate the learning potential of incoming Grade 9 students.  Students are given the opportunity to experience "A Day in the Life of a McMaster Student" through participation in hands on breakout sessions and interactive campus tours. This program also provides opportunities for students who may not otherwise have a chance to visit the University, through community partnerships with Pathways to Education.

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING STUDENT HEALTH & SAFETY TRAINING IS A REQUIREMENNT OF THIS PROGRAM

All new jobs have health and safety training as an essential component. Performing work safely is key.  At McMaster, we are committed to providing health and safety working and learning environments.  As part of this commitment, this year we have initiated the requirement for all student participants enrolled in the Take Our Kids to Work Day progarm to complete the Ministry of Labour Health and Safety worker orientation training.  This training, initiated in July 2014, was implemented in order to minimize  injuries especially those of workers who have just started work and in some cases their very first job.

After students take the training, they can print a certificate that can be added to their resume.  This training is a great start for those who will be looking for after school jobs or summer employment.  New employees will be required to take this training as part of  their first paid job, so why not show employers you are also interested in performing your work safely.   Some student participants in Take Our Kids to Work Day may in fact already have fulfilled this requirement.

The certificate will be required to be submitted with the registration form to fulfill the successful completion of the registration process

 

Please note that registration is now full.
