Youth Financial Education

Besides having our Kassi Kangaroo program for kids 12 and under, it is our goal to provide real life financial experiences and information to the youth in our community in order to nurture financially productive adults.

Banzai!

It can be difficult for teachers to find useful and engaging programs to use in the classroom, especially when budgets don’t allow for it. Here’s a fresh idea: meaningful content using real-life scenarios that engages teenagers and doesn’t’ cost you a dime. That’s Banzai. kstate CREDIT UNION is proud to sponsor this online financial literacy program for our area teachers.

Classroom situations are great for learning general concepts, but how often does a student actually get to do what they hear? Banzai helps students simulate the experience of spending their own money in real life. That way, students’ learning will extend beyond the class. Sound monetary 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 on and act out real-world spending decisions.
