Youth Financial Education

Alaska Air Group Credit Union is partnered with Banzai to bring you fun and interactive financial literacy programs for all ages!

Banzai Junior (Ages 8-12)

When life hands you lemons, become an entrepreneur! In Banzai Junior, we use a lemonade stand to teach students how to make money, save for big purchases, and even operate a business. Kids get to choose a savings goal and then use their lemonade stand to save enough money by the end of summer.

Some of the other topics covered in Junior include the following:

  • IOUs (an introduction to credit)
  • Earning money
  • Counting currency
  • Saving and spending money
  • Working with others

Banzai Teen (Ages 13-18)

In Teen, students play to save enough money for college registration. They’ll navigate daily decisions, like getting a job, going out to eat, and even renting an apartment to see how their choices affect their end goal.

Teen covers the following:

  • Double-entry accounting
  • Renting an apartment
  • Buying a car
  • Renter’s insurance
  • Taxes and withholdings
  • Daily spending and saving
  • Auto insurance
  • Credit

Banzai Plus (Ages 18+)

Plus builds on Teen, except this time the goal is saving for a home. Not only will students have a concrete savings goal, but they get to go house hunting for the right property. Of course, navigating things like identity fraud and auto insurance along the way could make a win a little trickier.

Plus covers everything from Teen, along with the following:

  • Buying a home
  • Life insurance
  • Credit scores
  • Identity theft
  • Qualifying for a mortgage
  • Daily spending choices
  • Retirement savings
  • Tax exemptions
