PrepareRI is a statewide initiative to prepare all Rhode Island youth with the skills they need for jobs that pay.


PrepareRI aims to close the gap between what students learn in school and what they need for high-paying jobs. PrepareRI is a cooperative effort led by the Rhode Island state government in partnership with private industry leaders, schools, universities, and non-profits across the state.
