Description

What is the Expo?

The NW Youth Careers Expo is an opportunity for high school students (9-12th grades) to explore careers in a wide variety of fields and to learn about the skills and education needed to succeed in the workplace. Students also have the opportunity to participate in mock interviews or career-readiness workshops. More information about the Career Expo is here: www.portlandworkforcealliance.org/expo/

How are Schools able to attend?

We give priority to our contract partner school districts, as well as to schools wishing to send 50 or fewer students. Please see the PWA website for more information about how schools are priortized. http://www.portlandworkforcealliance.org/our-work/expo/signup/

Schedule

School groups should plan on attending the Expo for 1 ½ - 2 hours. Arrival times will be scheduled at staggered times due to the volume of students attending the Expo. This will allow for more interaction between students and employers. Please rank your preference times on the group registration form. If you are confirmed to attend, an confirmation arrival time will be emailed to you.

Transportation/Substitute Teacher Funds

Schools are responsible for transportation and substitute teacher costs.

Portland Public Schools: Portland Public Schools has set aside funds to transport PPS students to the Expo. Please contact your school secretary AS SOON AS POSSIBLE to reserve your bus or buses through the district. Requests must be submitted through PPS Transportation's online system.

Special Accommodations

If a student needs special accommodations, please note this on the registration form. The Expo staff needs to know in advance if special accommodations are needed.

Preparing Students for the Expo

Before the Expo, you will receive a “teachers packet” which will give more detail about the Expo, how to prepare your students and suggested activities. You may also check out our teacher and student resources here: http://www.portlandworkforcealliance.org/our-work/expo/studentinfo/

Individual Registration

Students can attend the Career Expo on their own. They can register online here, or download/email the printable registration from the PWA website. They will also need to contact their school regarding any forms required by their school (i.e. pre-arranged absence form, etc.).
