Stay tuned for more information about the 2015 Expo & Expo Breakfast!
NW YOUTH CAREERS EXPO
An annual event that is the capstone of PWA’s work, the Expo shows students the amazing diversity of career opportunities in our region and the skills needed to pursue those jobs. In 2014, the Expo attracted more than 5,000 students from about 65 high schools.
Over 125 exhibitors and many of Oregon’s best companies participated, representing sectors including health care, business, communications, manufacturing, construction, energy, education and government.
More than 100 volunteers organized by the Portland & Southwest Washington Human Resources Associations and the Oregon Staffing Association conducted 1,200-plus mock interviews to help students sharpen their interviewing skills.
THE EXPO BREAKFAST
At this event (held prior to the Expo), we celebrate PWA's achievements over the year and discuss what's in store for the future around school-workplace connections. Meet students who were inspired by our career related learning experiences. Connect with educators, business leaders, and government officials all interested in raising our high school graduation rates and creating a skilled future workforce.
