Banzai! Financial Education for Juniors

September 10, 2018

Young kid uses Banzai Financial Education Program

Start Your Child Learning About Money

Play Banzai Junior

Banzai Junior is an interactive money game made especially for kids ages 8-12. Players simulate running a lemonade stand to make money and save for something they want. In this case, it’s a new bike or hoverboard. They practice making basic business decisions, paying expenses, borrowing money, and saving, sometimes without even realizing they’re doing it! To them it’s just a fun game. To you, they’re learning important money life skills. By playing the game and simulating the results of real-world decisions, they learn about how to spend and save properly, and set goals for themselves. 

To get started, you’ll simply need to sign in with an email, and create a unique password. Your child can go through as many times as they like. If they need to stop before they are finished, the program will allow them to jump right back in.

This is a fun way to share financial advice and lessons with your kids, and help them learn values to Live Smarter throughout their lives.

Kids can get started here:

Banzai Junior is part of our full Banzai Financial Education Program, consisting of FREE online financial literacy modules, providing education directly to our Members, to members of our community, and to local schools and teachers for use in their classrooms. They are all available online in self-paced, age-appropriate, fun and interactive modules. We believe that learning more about money management can help us all Live Smarter.

One of our Holiday Traditions…

December 5, 2013

kidsoneida

A few years back we started a new holiday “tradition”. We’re once again looking forward to “adopting” seven families in need for the holidays through a tremendous organization, Kids Oneida. To make their holidays a little brighter, we provide gifts and items of need to these families from their wish lists.

We are given a list of the names/ages of the children and what they are in need of and what they would like to find under the tree. Each one of our branches plus our Member Care Center has a family with New Hartford having 3. Employees can shop for items on the list or give monetary donations. Once the shopping is done, we set up wrapping stations around our branches and everyone helps out when they can.

Instead of giving to one another in the office, we give back to our community and we hope you’re inspired this holiday to do a little something for someone in need as well.
