What is Opportunity Expo

The Opportunity  Expo is a dynamic college, career, and preparedness for life EXPO for students. The EXPO provides students with direct access to 2-year and 4-year colleges and universities,Tech and Trade schools, military options, service organizations and connections with community business leaders and owners for real-life, real-world exposure.

We are appreciative of those who support our collective mission of
helping our youth see the many opportunities they have as they make choices about their future.

Students will:

  • Visit vendor booths at the EXPO, and;
  • Participate in guided group tours of the college campuses including the new WSU extension; or
  • Tour EvCC's AMTEC manufacturing program.

We are thankful for a partnership that allows us to work together in support of our youth and collectively show them that they can succeed no matter what path they choose.
