Thanks to Tru Direction for sponsoring Banzai ... Mt Vernon High School
"Thank you for supplying this program for our students. After working through the budgeting and financial planning program from Banzai my high school class worked with middle school students on a program sponsored by the Business and Professional Women's Association. The pre work my high school students completed through Banzai was an asset when they volunteered working with the middle school. Thank you again"

Mt. Vernon is one of 14 schools that Tru Direction sponsors. 


Traditionally, this time of year, students heading for college may have made many of their college financial arrangements, but this year traditions have changed. The stable pre-college calendar for school visits, campus site orientations, and all the other student pre-school gatherings have probably been changed to meetings that are virtual or take place in approved social distance spaces.

However, the need to be financially literate has not changed. In fact, the current economic situation makes it even more relevant to be financially savvy. Following is a list of topics that addresses numerous financial subjects ... important for students and non-students -- scholarships, loans, college selection, budgeting, navigating meal plans, credit cards, planning for the future and starting a career.
