Children and Youth Services

Children and youth organizations are vital to community health. Keeping young clients well protected is critical—and requires an insurance provider well versed in the sector’s particular risks and exposures.

Frank Cowan Company has worked with Boys & Girls Clubs, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, the YMCA/YWCA,  drop-in centres, counselling services, and young offender detention centres among others.

Through our broker network, we’ve insured numerous children and youth services over the years. We know the kinds of coverage and protection children and youth services require. We know which risks to anticipate—and how to help protect against them.
