Amica Insurance | Amica Insurance and Year Up Rhode Island - Closing the Opportunity Divide Together
At Amica Insurance, we believe it’s important to give back to the communities where we live and work. We know that every community faces different challenges, and we’re consistently looking for meaningful ways to alleviate those challenges. As Year Up’s first expansion site outside of the Boston area, Year Up Rhode Island’s mission is to close the opportunity divide by providing urban young adults with the skills, experience and support that will empower them to reach their potential through professional careers and higher education. This is accomplished through onsite classroom training and an intensive internship with corporate partners. Since 2011, Amica has hosted more than 100 Year Up interns and hired more than 50 alumni at its headquarters in Lincoln, Rhode Island. Amica employees also serve as mentors, board members and volunteer their time to provide coaching and skillset building. Just six years ago, Year Up alumnus Ali arrived in the U.S. from Senegal. Today, he’s thriving in his role at Amica. Ali is one of many Year Up success stories at Amica, along with so many individuals that have been positively impacted by Year Up.
