Date:8/25/2008

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Aug. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- In their effort to ensure this generation of veterans is the most successful and well-adjusted, Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) partnered with St. Johns' University School of Risk Management, major Insurance leaders & the Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation (IICF) on a three-day "Warriors to Work" Insurance Industry Workforce Development pilot program. The program gave 11 wounded warriors, most of whom were from the New York Metropolitan area, the opportunity to be trained by two of St. John's University's most respected professors, Albert Beer and Richard Bennet. Among the plethora of subjects discussed were classes on Risk and Risk Management Process, Underwriting and Ratemaking. An additional component of the program matched the warriors up with human resources representative for insurance companies such as AIG, Chubb, ACE, and Benfield to work on interview skills and techniques.

This "Warriors to Work" program is another effort by Wounded Warrior Project to give our nations honored warriors the skills, tools and contacts they need to transition their lives in a positive manner once their military service is over.

"Wounded Warrior Project is sincerely grateful to St. Johns University and all the participating insurance companies for sharing their time and expertise with these wounded heroes," said Ryan Kules, Program Manager for Warriors to Work.

The wounded warriors who attended are continuing down a path towards potential employment in the industry.

Ryan Kules is available for interviews.
