After a two-year, in-person hiatus, over 500 insurance professionals from 95 companies gathered at the Give Kids the World (GKTW) Village in Orlando, Florida, to volunteer their time and talents in everything from gardening, painting, power washing and creating crafts to serving breakfast and ice cream and running rides for the village’s special guests.

Sponsored by the Workers’ Compensation Institute (WCI), the 76th annual Workers’ Compensation Education Conference (WCEC) focuses on workers’ compensation and occupational health and safety.  This annual service day has come a vital part of the conference, starting eight years ago with just 40 volunteers and growing to approximately 1200 in 2019 before the pandemic forced the closure of the village and affected many in-person events. Thousands of volunteers donate their time each year, saving GKTW approximately $6 million in staffing annually.
