Kids learn the principles of financial responsibility and decision-making first-hand through interactive online missions. The actions taken by these budding financial gurus decide the outcomes of characters, like Stone Broke, who's trying to turn his financial situation around with better money management. Kids experience nonstop fun -- picking up valuable lessons along the way!
Good spending habits are not only learned, they are also reinforced with the chance to earn real-life rewards for game achievements. Once you've completed MoneyIsland by saving Stone Broke, you are eligible to redeem a secret prize from our treasure box! Simply bring in the electronic reward completion certificate to any Volunteer State Bank branch.
Tracking the progress of your budding financial apprentice is fun and easy! Each child is issued an official MoneyIsland password, where they collect new stickers for every benchmark they reach. Best of all, it provides a great opportunity for grown-ups to interact with kids, tracking their progress and watching each milestone materialize into real-life achievements.
