Program Information

  • Banzai Junior – For kids ages 8-12. In Banzai Junior, players simulate running a lemonade stand and making basic business decisions, paying for expenses, borrowing money, and saving. 

  • Banzai Teen – For teens ages 13-18. In Banzai Teen, players simulate saving for college with a full-time job, living on their own, and handling decisions for living expenses, transportation, utilities, and more.

  • Banzai! Plus – For ages 18+. In Banzai Plus, players simulate the home-buying process by allocating their income over several paychecks to different budgeted needs, paying unexpected bills, saving for a mortgage down payment and learning about credit scores. A great place to simulate the experience before needing to do this with real money.
