Our mission is to improve insurance literacy in students and attract new talent to the industry.
InVEST is a unique national program that educates high school and community college students on insurance, financial services and risk management topics, and encourages them to pursue a variety of careers in the insurance industry.
InVEST provides all the educational materials and tools necessary to launch an InVEST insurance education program. These interactive materials – specifically created to appeal to the millennial generation – include an online e-book, lesson plans, textbooks and activities. Best of all, the resources are free thanks to the generous contributions of partner companies and independent insurance agents.
Founded in 1970 at Hollywood High School by the Independent Insurance Agents of Los Angeles, InVEST started out educating students in insurance to become better insurance consumers. Over the years, it has expanded to also teach insurance agency and company operations and encourage students to pursue insurance careers.
