INVEST introduces high school and college students to insurance careers, and you can help.

Share your passion with the next generation to grow the future workforce. 

Its no secret that were facing a real talent crisis in our industry.  To create a flow of qualified candidates, it's critical to plant the seed of insurance careers in young people.  Most students have never considered an insurance career, yet many colleges with an Insurance and Risk Management program, boast employment rates of over 90% for their graduates!  

For more than 45 years, INVEST volunteers have been in the classroom dispelling the age old myth that the insurance industry is old, boring and doesnt lead to a rewarding career. Through hands-on education with a variety of lessons students get an idea of what the insurance industry really isa rewarding and lucrative profession that allows individuals to make a difference.
