Oregon Humane Society Career Day

April 19, 2023 | 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

Join the Oregon Humane Society Career Day to discover what working in animal welfare could look like for you. You will connect with professionals, tour the shelter, meet animals, get your questions answered, discover new career ideas, and hear from caring adults working in the medical, animal care and adoption fields. You will also learn what you can do NOW to prepare for a career in this field.

How to attend:

Step 1: Fill out the 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 parent/guardian permission form ASAP. 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. Priority given to students from PWA partner districts (Parkrose, Reynolds, Gresham-Barlow, North Clackamas, Oregon Charter Academy, Portland Public Schools).
