Crawford & Company To Host Usher's New Look Foundation Workshop

ATLANTA, June 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Crawford & Company (NYSE: CRDA; CRDB), the world's largest independent provider of claims management solutions, on Thursday will host an Usher's New Look Foundation training workshop designed to teach young people how to identify their special talents and solve problems in their communities.

Established in 1999 by popular singer/songwriter and Atlanta-area resident Usher Raymond IV, the New Look Foundation trains and certifies youth in four leadership pillars – talent, education, career and service – to help them become successful leaders. The foundation has mentored more than 10,000 youth; according to its statistics, 98 percent who have been engaged in programs for two years or more successfully graduate high school on time and 99 percent of those students have gone on to college.

The "Powered by Service" training workshop is part of the foundation's World Leadership Conference, an annual gathering of certified New Look youth leaders hosted at Emory University. Youth from around the globe are attending the event and will participate in training and certifying more than 1,000 local students using a peer-to-peer model developed in partnership with the university's Goizueta Business School.

As one of 25 organizations in the metro Atlanta area participating in the event, Crawford will host 50 seventh- and eighth-grade students for the day-long workshop, and several company representatives will join the New Look youth leaders in the training sessions. Students will discuss the characteristics of great leaders, complete talent assessments, discuss solutions to a specific challenge, and learn how to write a grant. As part of the workshop, youth make a commitment to create and execute a "Powered by Service" project.

Those who successfully complete the training gain Local Leadership Certification, reflecting the development of critical thinking and communication and problem-solving skills, and become eligible to apply for a micro-grant to support implementation of their projects.
