Teaching kids about money

Area students are getting a free education in how to manage their money, thanks to Taylorville Community Credit Union, which is bringing Banzai, a national online financial literacy program, to 12 schools in and around Taylorville, Edinburg, Hillsboro, Litchfield, Morrisonville, Nokomis, Pana and Raymond.  “Kids have their own bank accounts, and they work through assignments that are based on real life,” said Morgan Vandagriff, co-founder of Banzai. “More than ever, it’s important that kids develop sound financial skills to prepare them for the real world.” Banzai is the largest program of its kind, servicing more than 35,000 teachers and available in all 50 states. Teachers interested in using the Banzai program can visit taylorvilleccu.teachbanzai.com or call 888-8-BANZAI.
