With so many State Farm Insurance branches scattered throughout Chicagoland, perhaps branches can work together to build strategies that fight poverty that improve the chances that kids near (and in) their markets grow up to become home owners, car buyers, and in turn, State Farm clients.
Partnerships and alliances that improve support for tutoring and mentoring have worked for the legal industry, and with the close proximity of branches - and shared market/community interests - perhaps similar partnerships can benefit the insurance industry as well.
To learn more about the benefits of volunteer involvement for businesses, and how tutoring and mentoring can assist workforce development, please take a look at the following Tutor/Mentor Institute document.
And for more information on why tutoring and mentoring makes sense in general, please read this document.
