SIDNEY — Sidney Federal Credit Union is working with Banzai, a financial literacy program, to make online, remote-friendly curriculum available free to 27 schools in the counties of Chenango, Delaware and Otsego as well as Broome.
According to a media release, Sidney FCU has offered time, money, industry experience and a variety of credit union resources to help local schools teach personal finance in the classroom.
Students using the program are exposed to real-life scenarios where they learn to pay bills and balance a budget. Students will learn to manage unexpected expenses such as parking tickets, interest charges and overdraft fees. The educational program also introduces students to auto loans, bank statements, entertainment costs and savings.
