  • How is Banzai Free? Group 15 Copy 6 Created with Sketch.

    Banzai is available for free with the help of local financial leaders in your community—like banks and credit unions. Because a local sponsor cares about your students’ future financial security, they cover the cost of Banzai (the online software and Library and printed booklets) for you and your students.

  • How long does it take to complete each course? Group 15 Copy 6 Created with Sketch.

    Each course is shorter than a school term but longer than the average class session. The three main personal finance courses (Junior, Teen, and Plus) take roughly 4-18 hours for students to completely finish while others, like Digital Citizenship and College & Careers takes about 7-17 hours. Keep in mind, these times group all activities and supplementary content together. Individual activities within the course generally only take 1-2 hours each to complete.

  • Is Banzai a substitute for my curriculum? Group 15 Copy 6 Created with Sketch.

    No, the great thing about Banzai is that it supplements what you already do in your classroom. Banzai is designed to be flexible. Your students can work through every course or just one. They can use the booklets before, after, or during the accompanying course. You can even pick and choose parts of the product that work best for your class while leaving out the rest!

  • What is a sponsor? Group 15 Copy 6 Created with Sketch.

    A sponsor is a local financial institution, like a bank or credit union, that provides Banzai for teachers and students to use at no cost. But even more than that, a sponsor is your partner in student education. Sponsors are passionate about financial education and want to be involved; you can help by requesting in-person or online presentations or classroom visits.
