21 Savage is taking financial literacy to the next level.
Wednesday, the “A Lot” rapper announced the expansion of his Bank Account Campaign. In partnership with Get Schooled and JUMA, a non-profit that helps young people find employment, the program will increase youth access to the tools and resources that will help them understand the principles of money management.
Savage plans to teach a monthly online seminar that will teach viewers how to invest in their future.
Young people who complete each badge found on www.getschooled.com will be eligible to cash in points for “21 Savage Bank Account” swag in the Get Schooled reward store including stickers, t-shirts and more.
The first lesson will debut this month and focus on how to earn money. The courses will run through May, and are just one part of the campaign as a whole. Another part will feature 21 tips on how to achieve financial literacy.
Savage is also set to serve as a “money-making mentor” to 150 young adults across the nation and specifically within the Atlanta area. Each participant will receive training and employment at JUMA’s working concessions at local sports venue, as well as financial support.
The Bank Account Campaign was initially launched by Savage last year, and was designed to teach the basics of money management, opening a bank account and saving for college. The rapper also gave away 21 thousand-dollar grants to students. The campaign was applauded by students and educators alike.
