Banzai Teen

Created for users aged 13-18, Banzai Teen gives teens the opportunity to work through real-life financial problems in a safe environment. Throughout the course, the user's goal is to save enough money to register at Vanderbilt Community College, but unforeseen challenges and quirky scenarios makes reaching that goal not-so-straightforward—just like real life! Plus, Banzai Teen can be played in English or Spanish.

Included in the Banzai Teen Course is a module called Life Scenarios. In some ways this module is a practice round for the game. It includes the basics of banking and budgeting and provides step-by-step instructions on what to do with income and expenses. Once a player has tackled Life Scenarios, they're ready for the game.

Banzai Teen covers important financial topics like credit cards, auto loans, envelope budgeting, checking accounts, and more. Plus, it's fun and silly, engaging users with a rich storyline and entertaining scenarios. To get started with Banzai Teen, all you have to do is sign up! Then, just select the Banzai Teen Course.
