On Wednesday, the Grammy-winning London native announced via Instagram about wanting to help kids and families with an offering, Bank Account at Home, his financial literacy program across the nation/
Partnering with mobile banking service provider Chime, education technology platform EverFi and nonprofit Juma Ventures, the Atlanta rapper’s nationwide “Bank Account at Home” financial literacy program seeks to educate young from kindergarten to 12th grade on managing and earning money. According to AP, he’s also partnering with Atlanta mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms to provide free WiFi and tablets to students in the city as part of the initiative.
“I started my Bank Account financial literacy program in 2018 to help the youth with money management,” said 21 Savage in a video announcing the at-home version of the program. “Now that times are hard as ever during this pandemic and so many families are affected across the country, I feel it’s more important than ever to give our next generation of leaders the tools to succeed in life.”
The financial literacy launched back in 2018 naming it after his 2017 track, “Bank Account,” to teach students about money management across the United States. Lessons start at learning the basic concepts of money management, planning financial futures, and topics regarding budgeting and entrepreneurship. The initiative will introduce additional tools and scholarship opportunities in August.
In addition to free access to his financial literacy program, 21 Savage is making a $25,000 donation to the City of Atlanta’s #ATLStrong Covid-19 relief fund.
