Create demand-driven solutions for employers to get the unemployed and underemployed back to work.
Skills for Rhode Island’s Future (SkillsRI) is a nonprofit organization that breaks down barriers to economic opportunity by connecting unemployed and underemployed Rhode Islanders to jobs with socially responsible, civic-minded employers.
A statewide, demand-driven workforce intermediary, SkillsRI works to close the workforce skills gap in RI, drive business growth, and move unemployed/underemployed Rhode Islanders into open positions. SkillsRI is a key driver of economic empowerment, contributing to the state’s economic vitality through the provision of workforce services that meet the demands of local employers, fostering talent development while helping Rhode Islanders achieve upward mobility. This is accomplished through our vision of "transforming lives through meaningful employment and economic mobility."
