A six to eight week program operated between June and August for youth ages 14 -24. The program provides youth with work experience opportunities in local businesses, public facilities and non-profit agencies. Work experiences provide youth with hands-on opportunities to develop the skills they will need upon entering the work force. Youth receive a stipend or wage and are required to attain certain benchmarks relative to their job performance. Youth also participate in a variety of career and personal development activities such as community service projects, field trips to local business and civic events, exposure to post secondary education and training opportunities, and guest speakers from key RI industries.
