Atlanta-based rapper 21 Savage is expanding his “Bank Account” program in partnership with Juma and Get Schooled to offer an online course to teach teenagers financial literacy.
The courses cover topics on saving, investing, debit and credit. Participants receive badges for every course they complete. Students can also ask financial questions by texting “money” to 33-55-77, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Juma works to provide employment for low-income youth in Houston, San Francisco, San Jose, Sacramento, Seattle, and Atlanta.
The expansion also includes 150 teenage recruits for the campaign. 21 Savage is expected to give away $15,000 to provide each student with $100 deposits to their bank accounts, according to AJC.
Last year, 21 Savage launched his “Bank Account” campaign to help Atlanta teens learn financial skills. He donated $21,000 to support 21 students in the program.
21 Savage made headlines last month for being detained by ICE for being in the U.S. illegally. The rapper has since been released and is continuing efforts to give back to the Atlanta area.
