Teaching Insurance

Insurance protects against the financial risks that are present at all stages of people’s lives and businesses. As students enter adulthood, it’s important for them to understand the everyday workings of insurance. Did you know that the insurance industry is also a stable and growing career path? By 2024, the Ohio insurance industry will need to fill more than 29,000 jobs and is offering a magnitude of career opportunities—right now!
