Associated Bank has been a strong supporter of Make A Difference since our start in 2006 and has helped bring financial literacy programming to thousands of teens. One special way they support financial literacy is
through an annual event that provides Milwaukee-area youth with a day of mock job interviews, financial literacy lessons and inspirational speeches.
The event involves a collaboration between Associated and many other community groups, including Make A Difference, Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee, YMCA of Metropolitan Milwaukee, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and National Association of African Americans in Human Resources. Dion Saffold, one of our star volunteers, led dozens of students through a primer on credit. At the end of the day, Milwaukee Bucks rookie Malcolm Brogdon urged area students to work hard toward living their dreams. Through support from Associated Bank, countless teens in our community are up for that task.
