The VBA is excited to announce that we have partnered with Banzai, a carefully designed web-based financial literacy program for all ages and groups, including K—12 schools, community programs, employee onboarding, and even families. A partnership with Banzai provides an opportunity for Virginia banks to enhance your existing financial education initiatives and deliver the latest technology to local schools through a private-labeled program that teaches, assesses and certifies students in a variety of personal finance topics.

Working with Banzai allows you to use financial education to build brand loyalty, multiply customer touch points, and get you in classrooms for face-to-face interaction. The Banzai curriculum supports the learning objectives for the Economics and Personal Finance course required for Virginia high school students. Over 40,000 math, business, family and consumer science, and computer teachers have joined the program nationwide.

As an introductory offer, VBA member banks are eligible for a 20% discount for any schools reserved by April 1, 2020*. To learn more about this program and how your bank can be a Banzai sponsor, contact Monica McDearmon, VBA communications and financial literacy coordinator, or Damon Sheranian, Banzai VP of sponsor acquisition.

Damon and his colleague Jake Finlinson will be providing demos of the program at VBAConnect, a conference for HR, training, marketing and retail personnel March 9-11 in Williamsburg.  If you are planning to attend, we encourage you to stop by their booth to learn more about Banzai and bank partnership opportunities. 

*Offer applies to new Banzai bank sponsors as well as current Banzai bank sponsors for any new reservations made with schools or with the Banzai direct platform. Please note that banks do not pay for Banzai until a school activates the account. Schools are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis.
