Outreach Program

Thank you for inviting us to your career-focused events! Due to the volume of requests from job fairs and schools in Oregon and Washington, the Pacific Northwest Carpenters Institute and the NW Carpenters Union are teaming up to best serve our community and school partners. Tell us about your event so we can determine if we can add your event to our calendar and how best to staff your event. Please take minute to fill out our online request form: http://bit.ly/CareerReq

Our team meets monthly to consider requests and identify staff who might be able to attend school-based and community events.
