InVEST Mission:
To improve insurance literacy in students and attract new talent to the industry

What is InVEST?
InVEST, a school-to-work insurance program, teams with high school and college educators to provide a useful insurance curriculum for students. With the help of InVEST liaisons (insurance professionals), students could have the opportunity for job shadow days, internships or even careers after graduating from InVEST. There are also sponsorship opportunities for high school students pursuing higher education, as well as students planning to go directly into the workforce after school from National, State and Broward County InVEST Programs.
