Travelers Insuring Futures
Inspired by conversations at the 2019 Travelers Leadership Conference Women’s Forum about the importance of raising awareness of the insurance industry as a future career opportunity for students, we partnered with InVEST, a nonprofit organization that educates high school and community college students on insurance, financial services and risk management topics, to create a program we call Travelers Insuring Futures. This “summer program in a box” provides a curriculum and related materials for agents and brokers who are hosting summer programs for high school students. The curriculum, which can also be easily modified to host college students, introduces students to the possibility of a career in insurance. After launching the curriculum successfully in a pilot program in New York City, we’ve continued the program in our Alpharetta, Georgia, and Chicago, Illinois, offices.
- Through Travelers Insuring Futures, students are introduced to an industry that offers a wide variety of rewarding career opportunities.
- Paid internships provide experience that helps students identify areas of interest and builds their skills and competencies for successful employment in the future.
- Our Travelers Insuring Futures program is one of the many ways in which we are working to attract, grow and develop insurance industry talent.
- This program benefits our agent and broker partners and strengthens our relationship with them.
