Lifespan Workforce Development
Lifespan Workforce Development provides the opportunities, inspiration, and education to help you find your career in healthcare. Lifespan partners with employers and youth mentorship programs to serve as a host career training site. Our partners include Year Up, Propel America, the Genesis Center, Community College of Rhode Island and Rhode Island College.
Workforce and Youth Development at Lifespan offers practical work experience, mentorship under professional career experts, training, and education strategies. The programs also focus on building employability skills through work-readiness workshops that align with Lifespan’s mission, C.A.R.E values, and standard of excellence. By the end of the program, participants graduate with social and emotional learning, professionalism, and essential skills training.
The Papitto Opportunity Connection (POC) has provided Lifespan with a four-year, $10 million grant award to support career programs that help ensure our workforce and its leaders reflect the communities we serve.
