Banzai Financial Literacy 

First Federal was founded on the commitment to help our community become a better place to work, live, and visit. One component of that goal is teaching the importance of financial literacy. We partner with Banzai, an award-winning and interactive financial literacy program, to provide in-depth lessons to equip Yamhill County students with the knowledge and skills they need to build a solid foundation for success. 

Three course levels are available: Banzai Junior for 8-12 year olds, Banzai Teen for 13-18 year olds, and Banzai Plus for young adults. Students are exposed to real-life scenarios where they learn to pay bills and balance a budget - but it's not always easy. They must learn to manage unexpected expenses, interest charges, overdraft fees, tax returns, identity theft, and maintain a good credit score. 

With Banzai's flexible schedule, accessibility from any device, and alignment to state teaching standards, First Federal is making it easy for teachers to incorporate financial literacy in their classrooms. With this partnership, we work with teachers to help students solve real-life financial problems in a safe environment and follow up with in-person question and answer sessions with our bankers. Teachers interested in using Banzai may visit or contact First Federal Community Impact Coordinator Kathie Byers at (503) 435-3214.
