Financial Education

As a Credit Union rooted in the education field, SECNY is pleased to provide comprehensive Financial Education Services.

Personal Financial Education

Here’s a fresh idea: You shouldn’t have to pay for financial education resources. Without spending a dime, you now have access to premium software that teaches the value of a dollar. (This one’s on us.)

Instead of telling you the do’s and don’ts of personal finances, why not learn them for yourself with real-life, simulated financial choices. In our new Banzai program, every user has his or her own mock bank account and can work through life- based scenarios. We are pleased to provide two popular courses to you at no cost: Banzai Teen and Banzai Plus.

Get Started with Banzai How to sign up

Try it from your mobile or desktop device today! Start it now, come back to it later and your progress will be saved every step of the way.
Banzai Direct has a resource library of 25 in-depth, interactive articles that cover many financial topics including retirement, insurance, taxes, life changes, buying a
house, budgeting and living expenses.

These articles help you take a deeper dive into financial literacy. They’re designed primarily for adults and young adults.

We are happy to provide clear, in-depth lessons that help you expand your knowledge on the financial topics you care about most. Happy learning!

Sharing Financial Education

The same platform that teens and adults access at home can be shared with others! Banzai Direct can be shared with unlimited users, in so many ways. Whether you are a teacher, library patron, church member, coworker, or volunteer, you can spread financial literacy with a click of a link.
