How it Works

The Game

Kids learn lessons of financial responsibility while having fun! In MoneyIsland, kids get to play while learning by doing.

Colorful characters introduce the lessons and interact with players along the way. Kids earn, spend, and invest as they strive to be gurus that are ready for financial success.

The knowledge kids gain can serve them throughout their lives — and put them on track to a healthy retirement before they've earned their first paycheck!

Rewards

Though kids love games, they also love real-life rewards! Once players complete the MoneyIsland game, they receive an award certificate. Bring that certificate to any Main Street Bank branch to pick up the rewards!

Passport

The passport is a cool way to connect the online experience to a real-world item — kids use the passport to track their progress through the MoneyIsland world with colorful stickers. The passport reinforces the images, characters, and lessons learned in the game. It's also another way for grown-ups to interact with kids as they learn!

Lessons

Though designed primarily for youth ages 8 to 14, the lessons in MoneyIsland can serve players throughout their lives.
