Car Insurance Co. Helps Empower Youth

young people talkingMotivated youths have the opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills by becoming a State Farm youth advisory board member. The auto insurance company is currently accepting applications for next year’s team of board members.

Each year, a group of 30 people between the ages of 17 and 20 are selected to serve on the committee. The board members oversee the distribution of $5 million to address issues affecting communities and to assist with outreach efforts.

State Farm says its programs last year assisted with “financial education, access to higher education/closing the achievement gap, natural and societal disaster preparedness, teen driver safety and environmental responsibility.”

State Farm senior director of education leadership Kathy Payne says an engaged youth is important to a society’s success.

“State Farm has long believed that for communities to thrive, young people must be empowered as leaders and decision-makers to address real issues,” said Payne. “We’re excited to engage youth in our work and to have them help us develop meaningful service-learning programs in communities across the United States and Canada.”

State Farm continues to be one of the top rated auto insurance companies and is a leading provider of automobile coverage.
