In the wake of COVID-19, 21 Savage has decided to expand his Bank Account Financial Literacy program for online use in an effort to help students develop financial skills while they’re at home. The Grammy Award-winning rapper announced his free new program Bank Account At Home on Wednesday (July 1) in partnership with the education technology platform EverFi and the mobile banking service provider Chime.

“During these uncertain times of economic hardship, 21 Savage feels that financial literacy is more important than ever and should be made available for free to the next generation to empower them to succeed with the right tools on their journey,” a press release about the program reads.

The release also notes that Bank Account At Home was developed as a “direct response” to the Coronavirus pandemic, which has forced students nationwide to continue their education from home.

“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 the tools to succeed in life,” 21 Savage added in the statement.

According to the Associated Press, the Georgia native has also joined forces with Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms and will provide free WiFi and smart tablets for students who are in need in the Atlanta area.

The free online program is tailored for kids and teenagers, ranging from kindergarten to 12th grade. Elementary school-aged children can use the Bank Account At Home program to learn more about the basic concepts of money management. For middle school students, the program is reportedly designed to teach the skill of financial planning. The program also offers lessons in budgeting and entrepreneurship for high school users.

21 Savage first launched his Bank Account Financial Literacy Program back in 2018, in an effort to equip kids and teenagers with education and tools in financial literacy.
