Mission Statement

Our mission: Provide financial literacy programs and resources that empower teens to make sound financial decisions. Our vision: Build strong communities where students and their families make informed financial decisions and take control of their financial future.

Description

SecureFutures (formerly Make A Difference - Wisconsin) is a nonprofit agency founded in 2006 by area financial leader Lloyd Levin to bring together businesses, professionals and educators on the challenge of providing a solid financial education to every Wisconsin teenager.

Since, SecureFutures programs have reached more than 77,000 teens through our proven, measurable and timely lessons that prepare 16-to-18-year olds on a range of real-life money matters before they enter adulthood. This school year we plan to reach more than 9,000 students through our vision of improved teenage financial education shared by 400 dedicated volunteers, more than 100 schools and youth organizations, and thousands of community-minded supporters.

Volunteers are critical to our teen financial empowerment movement, and provide a lifeline for youth and a classroom complement for educators. All volunteers are trained and work from a proven financial literacy curriculum. If you believe every teen in the Milwaukee area deserves to feel confident and capable when it comes to personal finance, then join our movement by signing up today.
