A coordinated statewide cross-sector and industry-led effort to improve the career readiness of all youth
Prepare RI is a significant expansion of the Prepare RI Dual Enrollment Fund that allows high school students to receive both high school and college credits at no cost to them or their families. The Prepare RI effort is now broadened to focus on not only giving all students advanced coursework opportunities, but to provide comprehensive academic opportunities, life skills, and career preparation to all RI students through programs, pathways, and work-based experiences that develop their passions, potential, and promise.
Through Prepare RI, K-12, post-secondary, and employers will be able to tap into a cohesive alignment system that makes moving students through each step of the college and career education pathway seamless and easy. Prepare RI is committed to making career readiness available to all students through a system of career pathways. Through Prepare RI, career education will be high quality, accessible for all, and expanded to ensure it aligns with the needs of local high-wage, high-demand employer needs.
