Paid Training Starts Here
Start here to change your career. We Make RI offers two types of paid internships: General Manufacturing and Industrial Sewing. Both are FREE to approved applicants, and even better…workers earn a weekly stipend while they’re here.
No experience necessary. Both internships run for 3-4 weeks and start with the basics of working in a factory environment. Then we advance to skills like assembly, shipping, and working at productions speeds. Interns work on real projects in a real factory environment, adding skills and experience to their resumes.
At the end of the session, career counselors work with interns to place them in full-time positions with our employer partners. By going through our program, workers can earn more and secure better positions.
To be considered eligible, applicants need to be:
- A RI resident
- Have a High School diploma or equivalent
- 18 years of age or older
- Unemployed or underemployed
- Able to work full time at completion
- At least partially vaccinated for COVID
