Howard S. Wright Career Day

February 28 | 8:45 am - 1:30 pm

Explore careers in construction management & the trades. Learn from industry pros about business needs such as 3D modeling, bidding/budgeting, project management, skilled trades, and virtual reality, then do hands-on learning and tour a nearby construction site (Artists Repertory Theatre) to see those plans come to life. Lunch included.

How to attend:

Step 1: Fill out the winter/spring student interest form ASAP. (Type your email address and cell number carefully so we can reach you!)

Step 2: Have your parent/guardian fill out the winter/spring parent/guardian permission form ASAP. (Your application can’t be considered until this is done.) Students who do this early have much better luck at being accepted.

Step 3: PWA will contact you to let you know if you’re accepted or waitlisted, or if the career day is full.

Step 4: Show up and have an amazing time!

Who can attend:

High school students in the Portland metro area are encouraged and welcome to apply. We prioritize students from our partner school districts when space is limited (Gresham-Barlow, North Clackamas, Parkrose Portland Public Schools, Reynolds, Oregon Charter Academy).

PWA Inclusion Statement: We welcome students from all racial backgrounds and ethnicities, citizenship statuses, socioeconomic backgrounds, gender identities and expressions, sexual orientations, religions and abilities.
