The Mid-Valley STEM-CTE Hub is excited to announce that we have partnered with Oregon Connections (also known as Nepris) – a social community that connects educators and learners with a global database of network and industry professionals and experts – to provide full access to their platform for public schools in our region for FREE.

Engage students through Real-world connections

Educators, librarians, and counselors can access an extensive network of industry professionals who bring real-world context to everyday lessons by:

  • Joining an industry-offered virtual chat
  • Requesting a virtual guest speaker for your class
  • Browsing and viewing industry videos
  • Exploring career pathways

Build My Future

Oregon World of Work


We’re looking for interested volunteers in our region to sign up and offer a virtual chat on any topic of your choice at a date and time most convenient for you. From there, Oregon Connections/Nepris will invite educators and learners across the country to join your session. We will also share this opportunity with educators in our own region.

Some ideas for virtual Industry chats:

  • Give a presentation on or offer a Q&A session to talk about your career
  • Give learners a virtual tour of your workplace
  • Discuss your career pathway
  • Conduct virtual mock interviews
  • Discuss the various careers at your company

Do you work in the manufacturing, automotive, or cybersecurity industries? Those areas are featured careers for November’s Oregon World of Work series.
