Make A Difference Wisconsin, Inc.

Make A Difference - Wisconsin, Inc. (MAD-WI) is a "not-for-profit" organization whose mission is to engage members of the business and professional community in the delivery of a 5-hour (6-session) financial literacy curriculum that will empower youth to create financial independence in their lives.  Their goal is reach every 11th grade student in the Milwaukee Public School (MPS) system during the 2006/2007 school year, then expand the program to the Milwaukee metro area in 2007/2008, and state-wide in 2008/2009. Studies show that America's teens graduate from high school without solid financial management skills. The lure of credit card offers and check-cashing stores, combined with a lack of solid money management education, sets many up for financial crisis that often lasts a lifetime.

Several members of WHD volunteered last year and found it to be a very rewarding experience. 

MAD is looking for volunteers again for the 2007/2008 season. The Volunteer Instructor enrollment form and program information is available on the MAD-WI website at www.makeadifferencewisconsin.org
