Transportation YOU in Portland

YOUIn 2011 WTS Portland developed its inaugural Transportation YOU program. In 2010 WTS International signed a Memo of Understanding with USDOT to assist in identifying and mentoring the next generation of transportation professionals.

The Portland chapter spent 2011 developing our Transportation You! initiative launched in 2012— a 10-week after school program with girls from Beach Middle School. The girls explored the different aspect of transportation including hands-on workshops, tours and presentations from WTS volunteers from different disciplines. The Transportation YOU committee established the following objectives of the program:

  • Depicting the diversity of transportation career opportunities open to girls (this conveys the diversity of the vocation).

  • Conveying that transportation is an exciting and creative field (this conveys the diversity of the lifestyle within the vocation).

  • Showing that transportation is in fact about building the future.

  • Providing a career road map – how you get from here to there.

  • Adding diversity to Portland’s pool of transportation professionals.
