Greater Iowa Credit Union is excited to offer Banzai Junior, a financial literacy program for kids ages 8-12, at no cost to both members and non-members (or soon-to-be members). 

It's all about trial and error. In Banzai, you make choices and experience the consequences of your actions in a fun and safe environment. The program follows a young girl as she sets out to learn about money by starting a lemonade stand, opening her first savings account, and saving for a new bike.
