Young Jeezy and Jay Morrison aka JayMrRealEstate held a press conference yesterday at the W Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia announcing Young Jeezy’s $1 million donation to The Jay Morrison Academy’s “Another Way Out” scholarship program.
The donation, given through Jeezy’s Street Dreamz Foundation will open up the doors to the academy to anyone, from all walks of life.
The donation will provide the first month of tuition for free, which consists of four real estate investor lessons, a textbook and live mentorship calls. It will also supply up to 1,000 full year scholarships for underserved and at risk youth, felons and single moms. Lastly, Jeezy’s contributions will fund a prison program “Inmate to Real Estate” that will allow JayMrRealEstate to educate inmates on real estate investing while still in jail.
Jeezy who recently released his fifth studio album, “Seen It All: The Autobiography”, expressed his excitement at the press conference stating, “A wise man told me one time if you want to help your community give them something else to sell besides drugs, give them something else to sell. I think this is a great opportunity, for the young entrepreneurs, for the young real estate guys who want to get into something else, even for the community overall. I am just proud for the Street Dreamz Foundation to team up with ‘Another Way Out.’ I think this is great for the community and I hope this money goes a long way.”
