Academic & Career Success
A successful future starts in the classroom. But many people struggle to get the education they need to compete for quality jobs and to lead a fulfilling life. Our giving focuses on helping to provide a foundation for individual success and on building a skilled workforce for our industry and our communities.
Where We Give
Nearly half of our annual giving goes toward initiatives that help underrepresented students attain academic and career success. We seek to improve academic achievement gaps by focusing on low-income and minority students in grades five through 12, students in college and those seeking careers in the insurance industry.
Travelers EDGE® is our signature education program. It has supported hundreds of underrepresented students in their pursuit of an education and a career.
By partnering with public schools, colleges, universities and community organizations, we are forging a path for students from middle school to college to career.
It’s been more than 10 years since Travelers introduced its Travelers EDGE education program. See how the program is changing lives.
In May of 2019, Travelers had 20 graduates of it's signature educational program, TravelersEDGE®. Learn more about our graduates and the program.
