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.
What We Do
- Engaging, hands-on lessons
- Age appropriate activities
- Enable youth to discover their likes and dislikes
- Encourage Self-Reflection
- Show the educational pathway through high-school and post-secondary education, for each occupation
- Empower youth to plan for their future education and careers
Here are some of the careers and career fields that participants have explored in past years:
Assiniboine Community College
- Agriculture and Environment
- Business Administration
- Interactive Media Arts
- Police Studies
- Trades and Technology
- Early Childhood Education
- Educational Assistant
- Personal Trainer
