21 Savage Launches Free Online Financial Program For Youth
21 Savage (real name Shayaa Bin Abraham-Joseph) is using his star power to give back. The 27-year-old rapper will reportedly be launching a free online financial literacy education program for youth sheltered at home during the coronavirus pandemic.
He announced his new Bank Account At Home nationwide initiative this week, explaining that his efforts will include a partnership with Atlanta mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms to provide free WiFi and tablets for undeserved students in the city. He shared in a statement:
“I feel like it’s important more than ever to give our next generation the tools to succeed in life”
21 Savage said he wants to empower youth to manage their money and the program will work with mobile banking service provider Chime and EverFi, an education technology platform.
