Banzai - A Financial Education Program For Teachers

We know teachers need a resource for an often mandated, but also underfunded curriculum of financial literacy. We also know that financial literacy has yet to achieve standard curriculum status: finding quality resources poses a real challenge. As a not-for-profit financial institution, we're deeply interested in helping young people become wise stewards of their money. And, as a credit union, we're experts in teaching fiscal responsibility. For that reason, we're offering Banzai - an award-winning financial literacy program - to teachers and their students at no cost.

Teachers and administrators are invited to sign up for this program by visitingwww.telhio.teachbanzai.com.

Hear from some local teachers who have great things to say about the program:

"Dear Telhio Credit Union, Thank you so much for sponsoring Life Scenarios by Banzai. My Personal Money Management classes began working through the simulation today and it is a great learning tool. Thank you so much for your support of financial literacy classes. This activity is a great way for students to use technology to better understand their finances."

"On behalf of Premier Academy of Ohio, I would like to thank Telhio Credit Union for their generous donation.  We are a charter school that can't afford supplemental activities like these without your thoughtfulness and generosity.  I will be using the books in our financial literacy curriculum for our business education courses.  It is so nice that you would do something like this for students at a school that are economically and educationally disadvantaged.  I know that these books will offer opportunities these students could have never experience without your donation.Once again, thank you for your generous donation."

" I am excited to add Banzai to my curriculum and look forward to the students using "real life" situations to learn Financial Literacy.  It would have taken me days, and perhaps months, to come up with a simulation like yours.  THANK YOU for realizing the benefits and donating the funds to assist our students who will soon be consumers in the real world.  I truly appreciate the donation!!" - Cathy Tebay. HILLIARD DAVIDSON HIGH SCHOOL
