Wonder of Work West

Introduction

Kids can't imagine a future for themselves doing something they've never experienced.

The goal of the Wonder of Work (WOW) program is to give children many educational and career experiences. WOW helps kids aged 10 and 11 to explore career options and to learn about themselves and their goals. They explore their likes, dislikes, and potential. Participants leave WOW empowered to take charge of their unique career paths.

WOW is a fun way for kids to learn about themselves, but it's so much more than that. Participants begin to see the link between education, career options, and personal success. They become their own career champions.
