Atlanta rapper 21 Savage is looking out for the youth. This week, he launched a major financial literacy program and teamed up with his city mayor to help inform kids how to make better money-spending decisions.

According to reports, 21 has partnered with Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms to teach financial literacy to youth trapped at home during the coronavirus pandemic. The program is called ‘Bank Account at Home.’
Bank Account at Home offers free online financial literacy education for both children and their families, and Atlanta mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms is partnering with the campaign. Free internet access and tablets will be offered to youth in kindergarten to 12th grade as part of Bank Account at Home, while virtual learning solutions will be available to students already enrolled with his Bank Account Juma program.

The rap star spoke on the initiative, which was originally founded two years ago, in a video announcement.
“I started my Bank Account financial literacy program in 2018 to help the youth with money management. 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.” – 21 Savage
Wait, There’s More
Savage loves to let people know hard work pays off. The hip-hop star went online in June 2020 to show off his 2019 Grammy Award trophy. 21 relied on his IG page to share the motivational post which features him shirtless but holding onto the Best Rap Song award for his and J. Cole‘s “a lot” banger.
