Help Adults Return to Learning!
Your support helps us to empower as many adults as possible to achieve their degrees!
Graduate! Rhode Island relies on donations and grants to achieve its goal of engaging adults in our state with opportunities to connect to college. Without these funds we cannot offer our services to help adults reach their future goals and their full potential.
Volunteer to serve as an academic advisor for returning adult students. We will train you!
As an advisor, you’ll support returning learner one-on-one with their exploration of colleges and programs, ultimately helping them to enroll, and eventually graduate! Advisors play an important role in connecting with learners to continually motivate and encourage them to reach their goal of earning a degree. Advisors are good listeners, good communicators and understand the needs of the different populations served by Graduate! Rhode Island.
