Thursday morning Mayor Taveras visited the Providence youth of Inspiring Minds to recognize the work throughout the community.

Inspiring Minds, a Providence nonprofit dedicated to helping students succeed in school, is administered by many organizations including Workforce Solutions of Providence/Cranston and the Providence Department of Parks and Recreation. 

The program is designed to “give young people valuable work experience that will help them be more marketable to employers and stay on a path to success,” according to Taveras.

Among the many programs, Providence youth are employed at Boys and Girls Clubs of Providence, Goodwill Industries of Rhode Island and Youth in Action.

“Youth involved in the summer jobs program gain valuable work experience and are making a real impact in their neighborhoods at the same time,” said Terri Adelman, Executive Director of Inspiring Minds.

New features are added to this year’s Workforce Solution’s summer program, including job safety and worker’s rights training.
