Financial Tools




Sound financial habits don't begin on their own. The first day a student uses Banzai they have to begin thinking critically, decisively and analytically. They will get to work though, and act out, real-world spending decisions. Banzai includes interactive, online tools, as well as printed materials in order to keep students of all levels interested.

Educator Note of Appreciation:


Altra Federal Credit Union,
Thank you so much for the gift of the Banzai Life Scenarios books. The students enjoyed using a real life simulation to practice their budgeting and money management. As always, thank you for your generosity. My students and I truly appreciate it!

~ Amy


Thank you for your continued support of financial literacy in our schools!
