When life hands you lemons, become an entrepreneur! In Banzai Jr., you’ll be the owner of a lemonade stand. You’ll need to make money, save for big purchases, operate a business, count currency, and work with others. So choose a savings goal and use your lemonade stand to save enough money by the end of summer.
Welcome to the real world! In Banzai Teen, you’ll work to save enough money for your first semester’s college tuition and registration fees. You’ll make important everyday decisions, like choosing living arrangements, transportation, utilities, and entertainment with your friends! Because Banzai is just like real life, you’ll face unexpected obstacles, which could impact your end goal.
As a bonus – once a user completes the program, a Certificate of Completion will be presented on screen with instructions on where to fill out a registration form for our monthly drawing for a $50 VISA gift card.
It’s on to adulthood! Navigate real-life scenarios by preparing to purchase a home. You’ll be faced with challenges while house-hunting for the right property, and will need to make tough decisions that will affect your credit score and will have an impact on insurance, borrowing rates, and more. Banzai Plus covers concepts like identity theft, auto & life insurance, income tax, mortgages, and long-term financial trade-offs.
This one is all about you. Banzai Coach offers a personalized experience by asking questions about your situation and goals. Each Coach goes in-depth to provide the best pathway for your unique situation. Struggling to manage your debt? Looking to start a business? Need to fill out the FAFSA? Thinking of retirement? There’s a coach for you! You’ll want to keep coming back to Banzai Coach as your financial situation changes, and new coaches are added.
Please note: While all Banzai programs build on previous programs, anyone can jump in at any time at the program for their age level.
