The vision of Labrador-Grenfell Health is of healthy people living in healthy communities.
Every year as a part of the annual national Take Our Kids to Work Day Event, several grade nine students from Harriot Curtis Collegiate in St. Anthony spend the day at various departments in Labrador-Grenfell Health. This gives the students have an opportunity to experience a wide variety of job and career options in the health and community services fields. The Take Our Kids to Work program illustrates the importance of education, skills development and training while giving students the opportunity to experience the world of work and the variety of career opportunities that awaits them. The LabQuest Program, another initiative hosted by Labrador-Grenfell Health, is a long-term recruitment initiative whereby high school students from Northern Newfoundland and Labrador, spend a week in residence in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, participate in presentations with health care professionals and have an opportunity to job shadow various disciplines. It is a very rewarding experience where upon completion of the program, many students have in fact change their minds regarding their career of choice, indicating interest in Medical Specialties, Pharmacy, Family Medicine, Midwifery and Paramedicine. The LabQuest program is also made possible by various partners, such as the Labrador Mentis Nation, Department of Health – Nunatsiavut Government, the College of the North Atlantic and other individuals that dedicate their time each year
