Build My Future in Southwest Missouri 

This year's Build My Future in Southwest Missouri will be in a new location!  The Workforce Investment Board of Southwest Missouri and Missouri Job Center are happy to announce that the 2023 event will be at College Heights Athletics Complex (Formerly ETG Sports & Event Center) in Joplin. 

As an employer or trainer in the building-trades sector, you may purchase exhibit space to provide interactive displays and activities for eighth grade through high-school students.  Students will attend the event from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.  We expect to have between 500 and 800 students.

Upon receiving your paid registration, we will contact you with more information about the event, including set up, exhibit location, etc.  Once you register, you will receive an automated confirmation email.  If you do not receive this email, please contact for assistance.

Please note that we are unable to issue refunds and that your space will not be reserved until payment is received.

Click below to go to the registration form, which includes more information.  You will have the option to pay with a credit card or mail a check.

We look forward to your participation and to seeing you at Build My Future in Southwest Missouri!
