Thank you for your interest in the PrepareRI Internship Programs.

PrepareRI is a statewide initiative designed to prepare all Rhode Island students with the skills they need for jobs that pay. The PrepareRI Internship Programs provide paid summer internships for high school juniors enrolled in any Rhode Island public school and for first-generation college students currently attending any Rhode Island college or university. 

Skills for Rhode Island’s Future (SkillsRI) was selected by the Rhode Island Governor’s Workforce Board to serve as the statewide career intermediary to develop and administer the PrepareRI Internship Programs. SkillsRI is responsible for reviewing student applications, selecting students and matching them with employers. SkillsRI will also serve as the single point of contact for employers, schools, students and parents/guardians.
