Real Pathways Rhode Island

Real Pathways Rhode Island (Real Pathways) is a workforce development initiative that supports partnerships between and among public, private, and nonprofit agencies that serve populations with traditional barriers to employment (i.e. veterans, homeless, long-term unemployed, English language learners, etc.) or regions of the state with above average concentrations of poverty or unemployment. Led by a lead convener, these partners collaborate to provide workforce development services that are demand-driven, linked to the larger workforce development network, and designed to maximize the opportunities for middle-class employment.
