SkillsRI COVID-19 Innovation Challenge
Skills For Rhode Island's Future (SkillsRI) has launched an entirely reimagined PrepareRI summer internship program to give high school students across Rhode Island a real-world view into the evolving work landscape.
The program, called the COVID-19 Innovation Challenge, is a virtual internship that will challenge interns to form their own student-run corporations, collaborate with remote teams and think critically to build viable solutions that will address the real-world challenges companies and industries are facing as a result of COVID-19.
The internship will culminate in a competition in which student-run corporations will be asked to present their solutions for the chance to win scholarships. The PrepareRI team is looking for industry experts, business coaches and mentors to guide students as they build their solutions and help us equip our future workforce with the right skills to be successful in today's changing work environment.
