The NW Youth Careers Expo allows thousands of high school students and teachers to engage with 150+ employers and postsecondary partners for community-based career exploration. The past two Expos took place on a virtual platform due to COVID-19. In 2023, we are excited to return with our partners to an in-person format at the Oregon Convention Center.

Why Participate?

Grow your own workforce

We shop locally and eat locally. Why not hire locally? Invest today in young people who will become the workforce for tomorrow. Retirements are looming, recruitment is fierce, and many Oregon businesses need to strengthen and diversify their local pipeline of talent. The Expo lets you invest in your future workforce.

Support Oregon education

Oregon's high schools are full of promising and capable young people, but students and families are struggling after two years of pandemic challenges. Help inspire our students to graduate and find well-paying jobs by showing them pathways to great careers.

Showcase your company

The Expo attracts thousands of students from about 70+ high schools in Oregon and Southwest Washington. It draws the region’s most dynamic employers from every major industry. Political leaders, business owners, educators and the media come, too. Don’t be left out!
