With the help of Members First Community Credit Union, the school is using a web-based program to give students real-life scenarios where they have to choose how to responsibly budget their money.
This is a lesson students know will be important down the line.
“Mostly with college, I mean, there’s people there to help you,” student Abbigail Milhauser said. “In the real world, though, there’s not a whole lot of people there to help you.””
Over 20,000 teachers use this program nationally. Members First Community Credit Union provides 33 schools with the program, called Banzai, and encourages more teachers sign up.
