Banzai is a "choose your own adventure" game that prepares you for life's hardest financial decisions. We all make money mistakes, and budgeting looks a lot harder than it has to be. That's why we're offering you Banzai, a real-world financial wellness program used by tens of thousands of schools nationwide.
All three Banzai courses — Junior, Teen, and Plus — take kids, teens, and adults through scenarios in a fun, lifelike simulation.
Saving money is not an end to itself — managing money well is about reaching goals. In Banzai, you will learn to make trade-offs, setting money aside for your needs and living well at the same time. In Plus, you will even watch how your choices affect your credit report, and your ability to borrow for a home.
Budgeting: Learn how to enjoy the money you make, while still meeting your needs.
Trade-Offs: The "right" answers aren't clear in real life — decide between several good choices.
Paying Bills: It's never too late to learn self-sufficiency.
Credit Scores: Experiment with credit safely before being tossed into real life.
It's completely free, thanks to Wasatch Peaks. It's one thing to watch a video about buying a home— it's another thing to experience buying a home for yourself. Most important, Banzai prepares you to go after your personal financial goals.
No matter your age or experience with money, Banzai will help you take control of your finances. Sign up at wasatchpeaks.learnbanzai.com today and start playing.
