21 Savage Starts Org To Help At-Risk Youth To Find Careers

21 Savage is ready to change lives with the launch of his new Bank Account campaign. The goal of the initiative is to create 150 jobs for at-risk youth.

In a press release issued Thursday (March 7), 21 announced that, in conjunction with non-profit organizations Get Schooled and Juma, his campaign will enter its next phase, which is one that will get 150 jobs for at-risk teens by this June. According to a press release, the jobs will consist of working on concessions at sports and entertainment venues across the U.S. In addition to a job, candidates will get training and experience, plus get connected to other education and career opportunities.

“While my #1 song was called ‘Bank Account,’ growing up, I knew almost nothing about bank accounts,” he said in a press release a couple of weeks ago. “As I have gotten smarter about financial management, I realize how empowering it is to control your money rather than be controlled by it. I want to help kids with a background similar to mine to get smart about their money.”

21 will serve as an adviser – a role he is calling the “Money Making Mentor” – in his campaign. He will also offer monthly tips on learning how to manage money.  For more information head over to getschooled.com.
