About Workforce Education RI

This website has been developed collaboratively by Rhode Island Department of Education-funded Adult Education agencies and the Rhode Island Adult Education Professional Development Center.

Our Purpose

We connect employers with RI's nonprofit workforce education programs to skill up current employees and to help employers find well-prepared candidates for internships and hiring. Flexible and innovative, workforce education programs ensure that employers have the talent they need to compete and grow in a rapidly changing economy.


The Governor's Workforce Board and the Rhode Island Department of Education support Rhode Island's non-profit workforce education and training providers in their commitment to providing education and work opportunities that lead to careers.
