Financial empowerment is knowing what you want to do with your money and being equipped with the tools and know-how to make it happen. At 4Front, we prioritize financial empowerment and strive to equip our members with real solutions and supporting education to meet today's financial challenges. When you're in control of your finances and know where you're going, you can't help but be confident and excited about the future.
We've partnered with Banzai, the leading financial literacy resource used by millions of teachers and students across the country, including right here in northern Michigan. Now we're excited to provide you and your family access to this engaging financial education opportunity, from the comfort of your home and at no cost to you!
Banzai Interactive Library | Financial literacy for grown ups
Explore the interactive library chock full of relevant and relatable articles built for adults. Presented in bite-sized chunks with estimated reading times noted, the interactive tools make maximum use of the little bit of time you can afford to spend on your financial health. From buying a house to retirement to daily budgeting, these game-changing resources are absolutely free to 4Front members and prospective members.
The Game | Customizable real-world financial simulation
But don't stop there. 4Front and Banzai also offer The Game - a short, light-hearted simulation presenting real-world financial scenarios. The Game is scalable based upon age - you determine the level of challenge - and is suitable for those as young as 5 years old. The Game kicks off with a short pre-test to determine your financial literacy baseline, dives right into your story and concludes with a final evaluation.
The resources offered through Banzai do not require membership in 4Front Credit Union or a commitment of any kind.
