16th Annual NW Youth Careers Expo
March 10, 2020 | 9:00 am - 1:30 pm
2020 NW Youth Careers Expo
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.
