An estimated 2,500 students from 27 area high schools attended the Workforce Solutions Southeast Texas 8th Annual Youth Career Expo “Connect to Your Future!” at Ford Park in Beaumont on Thursday, February 24. The students attending the all-day event interacted with businesses representing manufacturing, petrochemical, construction, public safety, health care and medical, finance, law, post-secondary education institutions, and military representatives.

“The success of the Youth Career Expo can be attributed to our financial sponsors, volunteers, and to the 120 exhibitors, businesses, colleges, and training institutions, which engaged our students. The exhibits are exciting and, according to student’s comments, were highly effective in demonstrating various occupations,” commented Mary Hammon, executive director of Workforce Solutions Southeast Texas.

Sue Daniels, Workforce board chair stated, “Our partnership with education, business, and industry in Southeast Texas to create a world-class workforce is evident by the participation we see here today. Virtually every local industry is represented, and the students, our future workforce, are thoroughly engaged at all the booths. We want to thank our sponsors for their continuing support of the Youth Career Expo.”

It is important to note that while the Texas Workforce Commission provides the base funding for this youth event, the support of local financial sponsors allow Workforce Solutions Southeast Texas to create an engaging, informative platform that provides resources to aid students in career decisions as well as parents, teachers, and counselors. Platinum-level sponsors for the 2022 Youth Career Expo included Industry of Southeast Texas, Natgasoline LLC., and AT&T. International Paper, ISTC, Lamar University, Lamar State College - Port Arthur, and Golden Pass LNG supported the event as Gold-level sponsors. Silver-level sponsors included Associated Builders and Contractors of Southeast Texas, Sabine Area Building & Construction Trades Council, Entergy Texas, Golden Triangle Business Roundtable, Lamar Institute of Technology, Lamar State College Orange, Port of Beaumont, Port of Port Arthur and The Lee Group.

Partners and volunteers for the event included representatives from Region 5 Education Service Center, Southeast Texas Human Resource Association, Junior Achievement of the Golden Triangle, Texas Workforce Solutions - Vocation Rehabilitation Services, Greater Beaumont Chamber of Commerce, and Leadership Southeast Texas - LSET.

The 9th Annual Youth Career Expo has been scheduled for February 2, 2023. Companies interested in sponsorship and exhibitor commitments may contact the Board office at 409-719-4750 or email [email protected].

The Thursday, February 18th session of the Youth Expo was canceled last week due to the winter weather and power outages, but the schools that were scheduled to attend last week were invited to attend this week's session, along with the regularly scheduled schools. We are excited about this last session of the Youth Expo event and are anticipating a good turnout with the two days being combined. Thank you to all our sponsors and exhibitors for making this event happen!

We had 853 students visit the Youth Career Expo today from Silsbee High School, Port Arthur Memorial, and Nederland High School. Since this was our first day of the event, we tried to limit the number of students that attended, so all our exhibitors could familiarize themselves with the virtual platform. We are excited to hold the event every Thursday in February from 8 a.m. - Noon. We are expecting more than 2,000 students to attend on February 11th, our next scheduled event day! For more information on the Youth Career Expo, send us a message or email [email protected].
