Chubb’s charity division has completed the second-phase of its two-year US$940,000 grant to the Teach For All global network, which pairs promising individuals with teaching positions in their countries’ under-resourced schools.
“Chubb is both proud of and inspired by the impact Teach For All has made on expanding educational opportunities for disadvantaged kids around the world,” said Evan Greenberg, chairman and CEO of Chubb.
Chubb said its donations have gone to the Teach For All networks in Colombia, Mexico, Thailand, and the US. In Colombia and Mexico, the Chubb Charitable Foundation supported training institutes and efforts to recruit, retain, and develop teaching participants and alumni leaders. In the US, the grant went to regional summer training institutes in New York City and Los Angeles for newly selected participants.
“This is a significant partnership for our charitable foundation, and we are excited that our grant is funding both important global leadership development programs as well as directly supporting network partners in four countries where Chubb has significant operations,” said Greenberg.
“The Foundation’s instrumental support is enabling us to invest in initiatives to increase the impact of teaching participants and program alumni, who work together with many others to ensure that children have the opportunity to fulfill their potential,” added Wendy Kopp, CEO and co-Founder of Teach For All, said.
