InVest Update June 2018

The 2017-2018 school year brought us a year of growth to our local InVEST program, and we couldn’t be more thrilled. This year’s growth was Led by IIASF past-president Andrew Giambarba who expanded to two classes at Coral Reef Senior High School. To aid in this growth, Lissette Delgado an Angie Cuevas, both former Miami YAC leaders, instructed additional classes at Coral Gables Senior High School

Our success this year is further attributed to our partnership with the local NAF Academy of Finance programs within the Miami-Dade Public School System. Our participation this year with the NAF Academy of Finance students opened up the students to scholarship and local employment opportunities in independent insurance agencies and companies.

For the 2018-2019 school year, we are looking towards achieving our goals of expanding to additional schools. However, we cannot do so without the help of our industry. How can you help? Volunteer or donate. We are in need of volunteers to represent the industry as liaisons in the classroom for our 6-week programs. Also, your sponsorship dollars help to bring much-needed materials to the students, as well as scholarship funds to those pursuing an industry career.
