Designed to inform, entertain and inspire, TPR’s When I Grow Up invites children, between 6 and 16 years, to meet with a wide variety of professionals. Children and their families meet one-on-one with leaders in the community to learn about their career inspiration, as well as educational and professional paths. Organized like an expo, children are encouraged to meet and talk to the professional ‘mentors’ who represent the careers they are most interested in. The event is free and open to all, and will also include children’s activities and entertainment.
