Helping to make our communities more resilient is central to how we live our values at Intact. As part of our Community Engagement program, Intact offices have established partnerships with local nonprofits and support them through employee volunteerism and charitable giving.

Our Boston office has partnered with United South End Settlements (USES) that works with disadvantaged youth and families in the Boston area to help them achieve economic mobility and to disrupt the cycle of poverty.

This summer, USES “Club48” out-of-school program for 5-12 year-olds, hosted a series of two-week themed experiences including a “Shark Tank” style entrepreneurial skill-building program, cooking and nutrition events, field trips and more. Several of our Boston employees volunteered at the entrepreneur sessions to provide financial and marketing support ahead of “Market Day” where the children sold their “business” products. Others volunteered at the “Top Chef” and Carnival Day that culminated the summer program with games, food and fun! Our team enjoyed spending time with the Club48 kids and were pleased to be a part of their educational experience.
