Lifespan's youth employment program is designed to promote career exploration and youth development. The program offers an eight-week paid summer employment experience at a Lifespan hospital or Lifespan Corporate Services to teens 16 to 19 years old. Eligible youth must reside in selected Rhode Island areas: Providence, Mount Hope and Newport. Teens are placed in a wide variety of departments throughout Lifespan, including:
- Physical Therapy
- Central Processing
- Human Resources
- Food and Nutrition
- Respiratory Care
When they graduate in August, our summer employees take with them a wealth of personal and professional experience.
Some youth even gain permanent employment. Lifespan also stays in contact with the teens beyond the summer to continue career counseling.
