Educators: Thanks for being part of the 15th annual NW Youth Careers Expo! Here's a summary of resources and materials that will help you and your students prepare for the big day on Tuesday, March 19, 2019.



Our school registration page has information about signing up for this statewide event.  Students are welcome from across Oregon and SW Washington, with priority given to PWA's contract partners.



The 2019 NW Youth Careers Expo Teacher Packet gives an overview and provides sample activities for students before, during and after the Expo.  We send you an “early edition” at registration.

The PDF version can be filled out by students electronically. The Word version is easy for you to edit and re-arrange. Click on the link to print your choice.
