The RI Works Participant Guide is intended for the general public to use when assisting RI Works participants with selecting appropriate work preparation opportunities as part of their Employment Plans. Participants in the RI Works program are required to meet minimum hours per week in approved activities, and those hours vary based on the household membership and age of the youngest child.

Through the providers described in this guide, approvable activities are offered that range from 10-40 hours per week.
