The Kapolei Chamber of Commerce working in partnership with Kamehameha Schools, UH West O'ahu and the Dept. of Education is excited to host

the 5th annual West O'ahu Student Career Expo.

Waianae High School

Island Pacific Academy

Kapolei Charter School

The students will be interviewing businesses to explore possible future career paths and skills necessary for future employment and help build tomorrow's workforce.

  • Approximately 2,100 students are bussed onto the campus at UH West O'ahu where they have the opportunity to explore different career paths while visiting a university campus.
  • The West O'ahu Student Career Expo is an event that is integrated with and supports the 9th grade students as they focus on career exploration and the skills and attitudes necessary for success.
  • Students will come to the career expo poised to visit a minimum of three (3) different businesses and will come prepared with questions to ask when speaking with their businesses of choice. The students will interview YOU as they explore careers!
  • Ahead of the Expo, each student is provided a booklet to help them prepare for the day. Check out the 2023 West O'ahu Student Career Expo Booklet
  • NEW for this Expo, the following schools will be participating: Kapolei Charter School, Dreamhouse Charter School and Kamaile Academy  There will be EIGHT (8) schools in attendance!
  • To accommodate the students for the best experience, the Expo will be held over two days instead of one as it has been held in past years.
