The Providence Boat Show will host “Youth Day” from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday.
More than 130 students in middle and high school, along with group leaders from Pawtucket, Warwick, Providence, and the Bristol-Warren school districts, will participate.
“We are really pleased to have this opportunity to show the youth of Rhode Island how important the marine industry is to this state,” show director Nancy Piffard said in a statement. “And if they are considering a career that will keep them in the state, the marine industry is one of the best choices they can make. This industry is here to stay and growing.”
The Providence Boat Show runs today though Sunday.
