Wonder of Work Westman



The Wonder of Work Program aims to give children the broadest career-sampling experience possible, opening their eyes to a world of self-discovery, career options, and empowerment.

From Stock Market Broker to Biochemist, Carpenter to Engineer each year 180 kids aged 10-and-11 are nominated by their schools to experience 40 occupations and professions at Assiniboine Community College and Brandon University.

For 12 weeks, from November to March, children spend up to five hours each Saturday participating in hands-on education and career focused experiences.

Wonder of Work lets kids have fun uncovering their likes, dislikes, and potential. They are inspired to see the link between education, career development, and personal success, while learning to take charge of their unique career paths.

With the Wonder of Work, children become their own career champions.
