Goodwill of Southern New England’s Rhode Island campus Summer Work Program focuses on students who may not be able to obtain and hold a job independently.  It is a four-week, work experience with a stipend;  that takes place in the months of June through August.  We match each student with a work experience that corresponds to their interests or skills.

Program Highlights:

  • PAID summer work in the community
  • Job Coaches
  • More independence for those developing positive work behaviors
