Rapper 21 Savage launches free online financial literacy program for teens amid COVID-19 pandemic




LOS ANGELES -- Rapper 21 Savage will be launching a free online financial literacy education program for youth sheltered at home during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Grammy winner announced his new Bank Account At Home nationwide initiative on Wednesday.

His efforts will include a partnership with Atlanta mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms to provide free WiFi and tablets for underserved students in the city.

"I feel like it's important more than ever to give our next generation the tools to succeed in life," the rapper in a statement.

21 Savage said he wants to empower youth to manage their money.

His program will work with mobile banking service provider Chime and EverFi, an education technology platform.

The rapper launched his Bank Account program in 2018 to teach financial literacy to teenage students across the United States.

The rapper's single "A Lot" won a Grammy for best rap song earlier this year.

these things should be come part of official school curriculum - especially for at-risk, inner city youth .

i mean that whole "home ec" mess common not very long ago ...basically teaching young girls how to properly bake cakes for their husbands :disgusted:

sffsfsfsffs surely they can teach kids  things that their parents may not be well versed on because of generational mismanagement of capital in our community .

i'm so here for this. go 21
very Nipsey of him
