A good way to help bring more young people into the insurance industry is to provide internship opportunities in your office. Unfortunately, many agency owners are unaware there are resources and financial assistance available to help them to just that.
My Future Foundation has partnered with MAIA and Olivet College to create an Intern Guide to help your agency host an intern.
MI Future is also offering $3,000 grants for the first 10 MAIA member agencies that submit a grant application to help pay the student while they are working at your office. This is a grant that can be submitted by an agency once per MAIA fiscal year (9/1-8/31).
Young Agents: Please let your agency principal(s) know of these resources and get a young person into your office this summer!
You can download the free Intern Guide here.
Let your agency principal know they can post an internship position for free! through the Michigan Insurance Jobs board. (Simply check the "Internship" position box when posting the job.)
The $3,000 grant application can be found here.
