Making Connections

We Make RI started in conjunction with top Rhode Island Manufacturers to help them fill open positions by recruiting and training potential workers.

With our new state-of-the-art facility, students work on real-world jobs in real-world applications. When they leave our manufacturing training programs, they can be confident they have the skills they need to get hired, and employers can be confident they have the right employees.

Our paid training is open to unemployed and underemployed Rhode Islanders. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never worked in manufacturing before, or if you have long gaps in your work history, we can help you on the right path.

Are you a manufacturer in need of workers?
