Banzai is made available to teachers and students at no cost by a nationwide network of financial institution sponsors, usually banks or credit unions.
Banzai's purpose is to help young people become wise stewards of their money. The program also helps local sponsors deepen their relationships with educators and youth.
One powerful way Banzai can help young people acquire responsible financial management skills is to connect them with other responsible financial institutions. Banks and credit unions, in many cases, provide young people in local schools special offers and incentives. They may include, but are not limited to, monetary rewards for opening checking or savings accounts.
The offers may – if applicable – appear at the bottom of the students' main "To-Do's" page in their Banzai accounts:
Banzai may also present students with an offer after they complete Life Scenarios.
