21 Savage is still one of the hottest rappers out and one of the most financially literate. He’s learned how to invest his funds wisely over the last few years. Now, he is doing his part to educate the youth on how important this is. This is often not taught in the American education system.
Chime and 21’s foundation, Leading By Example, are partnering up with Juma Ventures and EverFi to start the “Bank Account At Home Financial Literacy Program.” This is to connect the youth with “financial education and work opportunities to teach them how to manage and earn money.” These programs will be free and available to complete while at the comfort of people’s homes. These are available for families as a whole.
“I started my Bank Account financial literacy program in 2018 to help the youth with money management,” said 21 in a video released. “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 grade levels that these financial education programs are available in are for elementary, middle, and high school students. Chime also added that new financial literacy tools and scholarship opportunities will be available in August. 21 initially started his Bank Account program two years ago to assist the youth in gaining financial literacy.
