Big dreams. Good jobs. All students.

The Portland Workforce Alliance builds enduring partnerships between local businesses and Portland-area high schools. By providing students with real-life work experiences and career-learning opportunities, we enrich their academic knowledge, inspire them to graduate and help them make informed choices after high school and college. PWA paves the way for young people to find good careers and contribute to the economic vitality of our region.

Our impact

Every year, we create thousands of opportunities for high school students to discover their career aspirations. In 2015-16, we provided Portland-area students with more than 11,800 career-learning experiences, including internships, career days and the annual Expo.
