Interested in Sponsoring the Expo?
Thank you to our 2021 NW Youth Careers Expo sponsors! Your support helps further the PWA mission year-round, connecting students and teachers to career-education opportunities.
Educate the next generation. Our young people need your help. Many students are unaware of the great careers in your field. High school students need to see the relevance of their education, learn about promising career paths and better understand the skills they need to be successful in the workplace.
Build your brand. The 2021 Expo will feature a virtual Exhibit Hall where students and educators can “visit” your booth to learn about your work. Exhibitors can share materials and videos about their workplace, and they can host chats to answer questions. In a typical year, more than 6,500 students from 75+ high schools in Oregon and Southwest Washington will attend the Expo, as well as 195+ exhibitors - including many of your potential business partners, clients and competitors. As an Expo sponsor, you create tremendous community goodwill and increase visibility.
Grow your pipeline. Many employers face a high number of employee retirements in the coming years, representing a loss of skills and experience. The Expo is a chance to connect with your future workforce.
Help high schools year-round. Sponsoring the Expo pays dividends for students throughout the school year. A portion of your Expo sponsorship goes toward providing in-depth career-learning opportunities for students, helping them make informed decisions about their next steps after graduation.
