Workforce Southwest Washington to host Youth Employment Summit

The Columbian
Published: December 19, 2018, 6:01am

Workforce Southwest Washington is seeking companies to host tables at the Youth Employment Summit on March 19 at the Clark County Event Center.

The YES event is an opportunity for companies to engage with their future workforce, promote their company, industry and job opportunities. It provides high school-aged people an opportunity to explore careers in our region’s high-growth, high-demand industries and find first jobs. More than 600 students are expected from school districts in Clark and Cowlitz counties.

Companies have three opportunities to participate:

1. Host a table. Health care, tech, manufacturing and construction companies can host a table to share information about their company, types of education/training needed and open jobs, answer questions and provide hands-on demonstrations or activities.

2. Hire a student. Businesses in any industry are needed to hire students (particularly 16- to 18-year-olds).

3. Be a sponsor. Corporate support ensures as many young people as possible have an opportunity to participate.

Employers interested in hosting a table or hiring students can register at https://bit.ly/2BArYwi. Registration is free.

For sponsorship opportunities and information, contact Darcy Hoffman, Workforce Southwest Washington business services director at dhoffman@workforcesw.org or 360-608-4949.
