The Mission
The mission of the Workforce Partnership of Greater RI (WPGRI) is to provide strategic leadership to meet the current and future human resource needs of Rhode Island's employers and to ensure a well-trained, self-sufficient and adaptable workforce.

The Vision
The Workforce Partnership of Greater Rhode Island, Inc. is an employment and training resource providing responsive, market-based solutions for employers and potential workers. WPGRI will collaborate with business, labor, education leaders and community-based organizations to establish a dynamic, outcome-driven, visible resource providing measurable and comprehensive market-driven based employment and training services. These services will include the provision of information, technical assistance and life-long training opportunities to customers. Employers will have access to a well-trained and dependable workforce. The Board anticipates that within the Greater Rhode Island region there will be:

> A workforce development system that balances supply and demand

> A number of identified local “one-stop career centers” to offer job training and related education programs to businesses and job seekers

> A system that is easily and readily accessible to any employer or job seeker

> A mechanism for measuring the performance of the workforce development system

The Workforce Partnership of Greater Rhode Island brokers employment and training programs for businesses and workers to access public funding and community support for business and career development.
