Investing in our communities through information sharing
From innovative products and services to goal setting and people planning, we look to the future in nearly everything we do.
We share knowledge and information we have to help people make good insurance decisions, promote safe driving and financial literacy, and encourage students to connect classroom learning to career opportunities.
Since 2013, hundreds of Progressive people have inspired more than 35,000 elementary, middle, and high school students across the country. Our volunteers present internally developed Crash Courses that help students better understand how financial literacy and classroom skills apply to real-life situations and can lead to job opportunities in the insurance sector.
In addition, we donate office supplies and PC equipment to educational institutions to support education and our communities. Since 2011, we have been donating PC equipment to people in need. As of 2022 we started making those donations to PCs for People, a nonprofit organization specializing in refurbishing and upgrading computers for students and those in need.
Our IT organization helps high school students in the Cleveland and Colorado Springs, Colo., areas expand their skill sets and map out their professional future through high school internship opportunities as well. Students apply classroom learning to on-the-job situations through the Progressive Educational Partnership Program (PEPP). This program gives high school students in IT tech prep school a first-hand taste of what a career in IT at Progressive is like.
