The World of Work (WOW) Youth Expo was back at the Abilene Convention Center on Tuesday, October 26th, along with a virtual World of Work (WOW) Webinar Series that led up to the in-person event. We welcomed 1,600 students from nearly 40 schools around the region to the 2021 Youth Expo for a unique opportunity to get career-ready and thousands more have been served by our virtual employer webinars. Thanks to the many businesses, organizations, volunteers, and staff who played a part in making this year's World of Work (WOW) Webinar Series & Youth Expo a huge success!
