In an effort to encourage financial literacy and responsibility, some Chesterfield County schools have implemented a program to teach students how to manage their money.

Banzai, a financial literacy program for students, exposes them to real-life adult financial dilemmas, from taming a budget and paying auto insurance to navigating taxes.

The program uses lifelike simulations, which help students learn how to make hard decisions, protect their credit and even go through the home-buying process.
