If you didn’t know, Usher founded his own nonprofit organization, “New Look”, in 1999 with his mother, Jonetta Patton and has since continued to grow.

Recently, “New Look” was granted $500,000 from the Truist Foundation for financial literacy education.

The funding will help young people in under-resourced communities with inadequate education in regards to budgeting, credit and debit.

The organization will create hands-on workshops about healthy financial habits.

Do you live in an area that could use financial literacy education? What financial advice do you have for a young adult who is just getting started on their own? What’s something about finances that you found out the hard way that you wish someone would have told you about?
