Established in 2007, Travelers EDGE (Empowering Dreams for Graduation and Employment) provides a unique, holistic approach to education for underrepresented students. Through partnerships with colleges, universities and community-based organizations, Travelers EDGE increases access to higher education and provides students with opportunities to excel. The program helps students progress from middle to high school curriculum in preparation for post-secondary education, building a strong pipeline of future leaders to college and beyond. Once enrolled in college, Travelers EDGE students benefit from a broad range of support services, including financial support, career and business advice from our employees, internships and job shadowing, and professional development workshops.
Build awareness of careers in insurance and financial services by providing a combination of professional development, internship and mentorship opportunities.
The Travelers EDGE Framework illustrates specific student-oriented goals for each stage of the pipeline, from pre-college to college and career, as well as desired outcomes for the broader community and company.
