Children ages 13-17


Brian Fleming Workshop: Kids Finance, The Money Sense Program, brought to you by Make a Difference Wisconsin,

One of the areas we often hear parents say they need more information on for their teens-finances! We have a great finance workshop for our teens, Brian Fleming, volunteer for Make A Difference WI, will be talking “Money Sense” for 13-17 year olds at our conference!  It’s the age range when they will likely be first confronted with jobs, budgets, bank accounts and credit card offers. Brian is a financial professional that has helped hundreds of families. Learn more about Brian below:

Brian Fleming is a volunteer for Make a Difference and will be presenting this teen financial workshop. For over 25 years, before retiring, Brian was tasked to help protect people and their property as a police officer in South Milwaukee. It was a natural transition to help protect the property and finances of individuals, businesses, and non-profits through the insurance industry. Brian realized that when used properly, insurance can and should be used for your benefit. Brian has a wife and 2 wonderful daughters. He enjoys spending time with and among friends of Mercy Hill Church, volunteering for InterFaith, and Make a Difference Wisconsin, as a landlord and is on the Board of the South Milwaukee Downtown Market Committee.
