Chernivtsi kids look for an answer to 'Who do you want to be when you grow up' question

Kids get to try out different jobs for a day of educational games

Future paramedics, doctors, policemen and even chefs all were learning the tricks of their trades in Chernivtsi. The kids were even running the city administration for a day, all a part of the charity action organised as part of the Children's day.

Police seemed to be most interesting for the little ones. At one point there were more children at the local station than police officers.

For those still questioning their career goals - a chance to try their hand at any profession was provided at a central park. This is where cookies were baked, the tile was installed and medical uniforms were tried on in record numbers. But, the fire engine was the hit of the party. The fireman on duty said he stopped counting the number of kids asking to see the truck.

Organisers say they didn't just want kids to have fun but also understand that every job has its value and it is important to recognise it early on.

Tetyana Liulka, event organiser: The kids get an ID, they can't get hired if they don't have it. Then every so-called employer gives them a salary and for that salary they can buy sweets and candy today. It's all a part of teaching them that there is a reward for work.
