ABOUT MILLENNIAL RI
Millennial Rhode Island was created to help you #ChooseRI. We believe that Rhode Island is the best place to live, to have fun, to work, to start businesses, and to start families in.
Rhode Island is home to some of the best universities in the world. Our culinary scene is unmatched. Our coastlines and beaches are breathtakingly beautiful. And Providence, our state’s capital, is quickly becoming a cradle for creativity and risk-takers.
Yet, for millennials, choosing RI isn’t easy. We’ve experienced some of the worst financial hardships in recent history. We’re burdened with student debt, we deal with underemployment, and many of us are dissatisfied working a job we didn’t aspire to do. So many of us leave and hit the reset button. We roll the dice hoping that our dreams are somewhere beyond the borders of our state.
We don’t want you to do that. We want you to keep your dreams here in Rhode Island. Millennial RI is dedicated to increasing the number of millennials who #ChooseRI after college. We do this together by providing you:
- A network of friendly professionals that want to see you succeed.
- Professional and personal development workshops.
- A voice for creating millennial-friendly policies from our local and state governments.
Millennials are 300,000 strong in Rhode Island, and every single one of them deserves being invested in!
Millennial RI is building a large and diverse network of millennials that will provide programming to keep our generation in Rhode Island such as:
Financial Literacy and Planning
Personal & Professional Development
Connecting millennials to employment and internship resources
Connecting millennials with activities and events of mission-aligned organizations
Promoting a positive image of our state within our generation
