Become a Member

Membership is structured in such a way as to be accessible to everyone. Memberships exist at multiple levels, based on an organization’s size, including an individual membership for those who prefer to join on their own.

Most members are professionals in the out-of-school-time field, but membership is open to anyone who cares about making sure Rhode Island children have access to quality afterschool and summer programs.

RIAN Membership Fund

All membership fees will be combined into the RIAN Membership Fund, available to members via application and accepted on a rolling basis. RIAN Executive Committee members will review applications and grant funds based on the criteria defined by United Way of Rhode Island staff, RIAN Executive Committee Members, and RIAN members.
