FITCHBURG — With summer fun taking on new meaning due to coronavirus restrictions this year, parents looking for educational opportunities for their kids can turn to Rollstone Bank & Trust and its online financial literacy program with fun games that teach kids how to properly manage money.
Rollstone Bank & Trust has partnered with Banzai to offer free, online financial education to people of all ages. From articles to calculators to games and activities, Banzai helps kids, teens and adults help take control of their finances.
“This summer, parents will need additional resources to keep kids occupied and it’s a great time to teach strong financial habits around spending and saving,” said Martin F. Connors Jr., president of Rollstone Bank & Trust. “A bi-annual study of high school financial literacy by Champlain College of Vermont gave the state of Massachusetts a grade of ‘F’ when it comes to educating public high school students on money matters. We want to play a leading role in changing that designation.”
Articles, calculators and coaches are available in the Wellness Center and lifelike simulations are offered as part of the Banzai courses: Junior for ages 8-12, Teen for 13-18-year-olds, and Plus for adults.
