Rapper Saweetie Launches Youth Financial Wellness Program 


Through her Icy Baby Foundation, the rap star has established a youth financial literacy program. The 6-week training aims to provide kids with the skills they need to steer a course toward financial independence throughout their lifetimes.

The project began last month in Elk Grove, close to Sacramento, California, and most recently supported a gathering on December 10 in Oakland, California. The six-week program is open to young people between the ages of 7 and 17. Participants will receive a funded debit card as well as educational materials on financial planning, investing, and budgeting. When the program launches in January 2023, prospective members can formally enroll.

In a statement from the Grammy Award-nominated rapper as reported by The Shade Room, she had this to say; “I want to continue using my foundation and resources to financially empower young children and students, especially in Black and Brown communities. The long-term goal for the Icy Baby Foundation is to increase financial literacy amongst kids and propel them to brighter futures. My grandmother and I have worked on this for a few years so it’s exciting to finally implement this course and program for young people.”

The rapper and her grandmother Roxane Harper established the nonprofit Icy Baby Foundation to promote the voices of Black and Brown people and to give them the tools they need to become financially stable.
