Chime and 21 Savage have teamed up to advance financial literacy in high schools with an online financial literacy & scholarship.
This team up is a part of Savage’s “Bank Account Financial Literacy Campaign” seeking to provide a 6 course online class that is completely available to everyone who needs it. For the High Schoolers that complete the program, Savage will also provide 100 $1,000 scholarships.
Via a mobile-first interactive program powered by EVERFI in playlist form, the courses will involve credit scores, budgeting, banking and other financial subjects. The courses will be available in English and Spanish. Students in grades 9-12 must submit an essay when the course is completed before December 4th, in order to receive the $1,000 scholarship.
21 had this to say in a press release on the subject:
“I’m happy to team up with Chime to make this year’s Bank Account Campaign bigger than ever with a new national financial literacy and scholarship program,” He said. “I’ve been an advocate for financial literacy because I believe it can help free youth to focus on the more important things in life.”
21 Savage first started advocating for Financial Literacy back in 2018 alongside the launch of his Bank Account Financial Literacy Campaign and this year he’s launched the “Bank Account at Home” virtual Financial Literacy program, in order to assist those adversely affected by COVID-19 pandemic.
Chime has also supported 21 Savage’s 5th annual back to school drive back in September. The back to school drive donated free laptops, wifi, backpacks, face masks and other things to students and their families.
