I Am Career City is an experiential hybrid of education and entertainment for children to role play different careers in hopes that they can explore their passion at an early age. This is Canada’s first ‘edu-tainement’ experience, opening its doors to children and schools.
The GOALS OF I AM CAREER CITY
As I Am Career City represents an edutainment center, we believe that as children participate in this experience, they will experience 4 outcomes.
Following on the practice of pedagogy, a discipline that combines both theory and practice, we believe children and youth participating in role-playing will create a positive experiential learning while having lots of fun.
I Am Career City is not only a safe environment, but also a place of equal opportunity. Much like a real profession where wages are given, we have constructed a similar reality in I Am Career City where children will have the opportunity to earn money in the form of “I Am Bucks.” The concept we have created is for children and youth to understand the importance of hard work and the value of money.
I Am Career City aims to create an accurate depiction of all careers supported with strong and certified curriculum in hopes that children can begin imagining their aspirations and write their own narrative.
Our goal is to empower every child so that their confidence becomes more evident as they experience different career pavilions at I Am Career City.
A JOURNEY IN I AM CAREER CITY
Tickets are available for purchase through our website or I Am Career City app. Once a ticket is purchased online or through the app, a confirmation code with further information will be provided. Tickets can also be purchased at the door or at our kiosk machines. All of our purchasing outlets will provide a description on each career pavilion where children are able to select their career based on their liking.
Career PavilionsThere are 30 career pavilions for children to choose from and each career pavilion will run for 15-30 minutes. In addition, there will be gift shops, a playground, and a café for some light snacks and drinks. For parents who are waiting for their children, there are access to computer rooms, rest and nursery rooms.
SafetySafety is one of our top main priorities for children, parents, and staff. In the event of an injury, we have designated an area where certified First-Aid is readily available.
Checking OutAfter a fun and fruitful day at I AM Career City, children and guardians will be checking out at the kiosk machine and return their RFID Wristbands. Prior to leaving, our centre will need to verify identifications for both children and their guardians for security reasons.
