supporting a legacy
of leaders since 1981.

How do we thoughtfully steward Rhode Island's most valuable resource - our people - to thrive in our workplaces and communities?

Core Program

The Core Program is not a starting point for leadership development, but rather a process for leaders to refine and enhance their commitment to shaping Rhode Island’s future. Graduates join Leadership Rhode Island’s network of 2,800+ alumni, and gain access to 700,000+ leaders through a National Leadership Network.

Senior Fellows Program

The Leadership Rhode Island Senior Fellows Program, in partnership with Age-Friendly Rhode Island, is an 8-week summer program geared to lifting the voices, knowledge, and vision of Rhode Island residents 62 and older.

College Program

College Leadership Rhode Island (CLRI) is designed for motivated minds, innovative thinkers, and active learners, 26 years of age or younger, helping to set them up for success as they navigate post-secondary life and early career.
