Financial literacy is a BIG DEAL at Town & Country Credit Union. We want to make sure that we are doing everything we can to help educate our members and the communities we serve on financial topics. One way we do this for area students is through our sponsorship of Banzai.
Banzai is a premium online financial literacy program for middle and high school students. It is an interactive, online program supplemented by printed workbooks which aligns with state curriculum requirements for personal finance education. It has become the largest program of its kind, servicing more than 19,000 teachers and available in all 50 states. Students using the program are exposed to real-life scenarios where they learn to pay bills and balance a budget--but it’s not always easy. Students must learn to manage unexpected expenses such as parking tickets, interest charges and overdraft fees. The educational program also introduces students to auto loans, bank statements, entertainment costs, savings and more.
Through our sponsorship, educators and students in Fargo, Kenmare, Stanley and Kindred receive free access! Teachers interested in using the Banzai program can visit tccu.teachbanzai.com or call 888-8-BANZAI.
Minot educators also have access to Banzai at no cost as the program is sponsored by Prairie Federal Credit Union. Minot educators can visit prairie.teachbanzai.com.
