INDIANAPOLIS, Oct. 26, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — IMG (International Medical Group), an award-winning global insurance benefits and assistance services company, is excited to announce its continued sponsorship of School the World, an organization focused on providing access to quality education in Central America. For the fifth time, IMG will be sending a group of employees on a week-long, corporate service trip to the Western Highlands of Guatemala where they will assist in building a new school for a community in need.
“It has been an amazing tradition for our staff and company to sponsor School the World, and we are proud to send another group of IMG employees to participate in the 2024 corporate service trip,” said IMG President and CEO, Steve Paraboschi. “At IMG, our purpose is to be there to protect and enhance the well-being of our customers, and this trip is a great way for our employees to gain a better understanding of what it means to be there for the customers we serve.”
The IMG School the World team members were selected based on applications submitted via written essay or video. Submitted applications were carefully reviewed, and seven IMG employees were chosen to embark on the trip of a lifetime.
“I had the honor of helping represent IMG during the 2023 corporate service trip to Guatemala with School the World, and it was truly a life-changing experience,” said IMG Public Relations Specialist, Carly Miller. “It was so enlightening to be in a new culture and heartwarming to help build a new school that will have an impact on its community for years to come. I am very grateful to both IMG and School the World for allowing me and my coworkers to have this incredible opportunity.”
School the World was founded in 2009 to fight extreme poverty at its core by bringing quality education to children in Guatemala, Honduras, and Panama. Since its founding, the non-profit organization has built more than 125 schools for over 15,000 children. School the World works both on-site in poverty-stricken communities who have little to no access to education, as well as in the U.S., providing students, families, and companies the opportunity to create change.
“We are so grateful that IMG has made the decision to partner with us at School the World for another corporate service trip in 2024,” said Kate Curran, Founder and CEO of School the World. “We believe learning and evolving are essential to creating change, and we are on a mission to solve the education crisis in our world. The work we do to affect change wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of corporate partners like IMG, and we cannot wait for our trip to Guatemala together.”
The 2024 service trip will take place March 3-9, 2024. For more information about School the World, visit https://schooltheworld.org/.
