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.
