16th Annual NW Youth Careers Expo [Canceled]
March 10, 2020 | 9:00 am - 1:30 pm
2020 NW Youth Careers Expo
Given the rapid escalation of the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak and the emerging recommendations on social distancing within schools, the Portland Workforce Alliance has made the difficult decision to cancel the 16th annual NW Youth Careers Expo and its sister event, the PWA Expo Breakfast.
The annual NW Youth Careers Expo is the Northwest’s premier career-exploration experience. In 2020 we will welcome about 7,000 students from about 70 high schools across Oregon and Southwest Washington, as well as nearly 200 exhibitors representing the state's leading employers.
The Expo shows students the region's amazing diversity of career opportunities, along with the skills and education needed for those jobs. The Expo includes hands-on learning, demonstrations, mock interviews, career workshops and the chance to talk directly with professionals about college-and-career options. The event takes place from 9 am to 1:30 pm.
The nonprofit Portland Workforce Alliance organizes the event. The Expo's goals are to connect employers to their future workforce and help students make informed, inspired decisions about their education after high school -- whether they choose a four-year university, community college or apprenticeship training center.
Registration for the 2020 Careers Expo is now OPEN for all school districts and community organizations. Click here to register.
