Summer camp is usually associated with outdoor time enjoying nature. Well for some kids, it means learning how to start your own business and within two weeks, bringing your product to market. That’s exactly what a group of enterprising 5–12-year-olds attending United South End Settlements (USES) summer camp recently experienced, aided by Intact’s Boston-based team.

Over the course of two days, 13 Intact employees volunteered through our Community Engagement program to help these young entrepreneurs make braided string bracelets, all-natural fruit juices packaged in mason jars, keychains and more that were sold during a neighborhood marketplace event. We think Actuarial’s Ryan Sosebee summed it up best, “I am looking forward to doing this more often!”

Several members of Intact’s volunteer team are pictured below enjoying their time at USES.
