Insurance Education Leader Embraces Virtual Learning
Invest is partnering with the Los Angeles chapter of Latinos in Insurance Networking for our Community (LiNC) to host virtual summer insurance education sessions for California high school students. As in-person education and internships continue to be cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns, insurance professionals have been looking for different ways to provide summer education opportunities. Parts of the Invest online insurance curriculum will be incorporated into LiNC’s summer Virtual Professional Development Series and taught to students by insurance experts within the LiNC network. Some of the topics include: a basic introduction to insurance, managing risk, auto insurance issues, and careers in insurance. The course will also explore financial literacy, resume building and interview skills. LiNC has donated laptops to the students so they can fully participate in this virtual education program.

With the sudden shift to virtual learning due to COVID-19, Invest℠ is proud to be supporting several online insurance education programs this summer. Can you imagine high school students taking time out of their summer break to learn about insurance and insurance careers? That is exactly what will be happening this summer in Georgia, Illinois and California as students gear up to go back to insurance “school” this July on their computers. Invest will be helping to support these programs in several ways.

Kicking off July 14, “Travelers Insuring the Futures with Invest” in Georgia will include sessions for high school students to teach them the basics of insurance, give them information about insurance careers, and show them how to market and sell insurance. A professional development portion will include Resume 101, Personal Branding and Interview Tips and Tricks. Students will work on a project with a mentor, finish with a presentation to leaders, and then graduate from the summer program.

In Illinois, Travelers will also host a similar but shorter program in July and discuss the basics of auto and homeowners insurance, teach presentation skills and offer information about insurance programs and classes from Illinois State University, North Central College and Invest. Prior to the start of these programs, students will receive a learning kit of Travelers and Invest-branded notebooks, pads, pens, mouse pads and umbrellas.

Invest and our partners wish to thank the professionals and teacher volunteers who are generously giving their time to teach—and we commend these motivated high school students who are using some of their summer break to learn.
