SMILE is an after school academic enrichment program (grades 4-12)  for minorities and disadvantaged students that encourages them in STEM content, to keep good grades and to go to college.

  • There are currently 26 SMILE clubs throughout the state serving 500 youth.
  • URI student mentors help SMILE youth during several annual URI annual events where youth complete an engineering or environmental science project/challenge. 
  • SMILE youth also receive information about college life and what is needed to get into college while visiting the University of Rhode Island. 
  • They are exposed to different fields in the STEM areas, current degrees and job opportunities.
