Educators: Thanks for being part of the 16th 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 10, 2020.



Our school registration page has information about signing up for this statewide event.  Students are welcome from across Oregon and SW Washington, with priority space and arrival times for PWA's contract partners. (Registration is FULL for 2020.)



The 2020 NW Youth Careers Expo Teacher Packet gives an overview and provides sample activities for students before, during and after the Expo.



List of Exhibitors: See the participating employers, colleges and apprenticeship centers at the 2020 Expo. Read the printable Industry Spotlights and browse exhibitors in high-demand areas such as technology, health care, construction & design, manufacturing, and arts & communications.

Mock Interviews & Career Talks: Learn more about the mock interviews at the Expo, as well as the 20-minute Career Talks on topics such as "Flash Coding with Microsoft," “How to Ace Your Job Interview," and “How to Land a Summer Job."

Bus Handout with OCC Map: Important information about dropping off and picking up your students, including bus parking details. The Expo is in Halls D and C. Buses can drop students off along MLK Boulevard or Holladay Street (north side). Be patient and make sure you have your driver's cell number. (The OCC website has additional maps and helpful information about accessibility.)

Finally, look for this at the Expo: The official 2020 Expo Resource Guide. Look for the huge stack of complimentary printed guides right outside the Expo Hall.

Enjoy the day with your students, and thank you for supporting their career exploration.
