Through a grant from the RI Governor’s Workforce Board, the Southeastern New England Defense Industry Alliance (SENEDIA) is developing an outreach program to high school and college students and their school administrators, guidance counselors and teachers to highlight local career opportunities in national security and defense.
Through presentations, our website, and member companies’ interactions, SENEDIA wants to expose students to a broader view of these career opportunities in Rhode Island. SENEDIA will introduce students to work shadowing, mentoring, and internships programs which will give them additional insight into careers in the national security and defense sector.
SENEDIA will host a Defense Education Forum on April 7, 2015, bringing together Rhode Island high school and university educators, state leaders and representatives of the state’s leading defense companies. The event will identify national security job opportunities and career pathways in the RI. As a follow-up to this forum, school visits will be scheduled to meet with students.
What: Defense Education Forum
Where: East Bay Educational Collaborative, 317 Market Street, Warren, RI
When: April 7, 2015, 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm – Feel free to come any time during the identified timeframe.
