2018 NW Youth Careers Expo

Tuesday, March 13, 2018 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM

2018 NW Youth Careers Expo
Oregon Convention Center

The annual NW Youth Careers Expo is the Northwest’s premier career-education event. In 2017, we welcomed more than 6,000 students from 75+ high schools across Oregon and Southwest Washington, as well as 170+ exhibitors representing the state's leading employers. The Expo shows students the region's amazing diversity of career opportunities, along with the skills and education needed for those jobs.

The nonprofit Portland Workforce Alliance organizes the event. The Expo's goals are to connect employers to their future workforce and help students make informed, inspired decisions about their education after high school -- whether they choose a four-year university, community college or apprenticeship training center. 

Don't miss the Construction Zone at the expo, where we focus specifcally on construction careers.  Be sure to visit the Build-Oregon/AGC exhbit booth for fun give-aways!
