WATCH YOUNG JEEZY AND Jay "Mr. Real Estate" ANNOUNCE $1 MILLION DOLLAR DONATION TO THE JAY MORRISON ACADEMY'S "ANOTHER WAY OUT" SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
Young Jeezy and Jay Morrison 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 Jay 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.”
Morrison, whose own life is a quintessential example of how real estate investing can transform your life, expressed why Jeezy was the perfect partner for the “Another Way Out” scholarship program, “I am so happy for Young Jeezy to be partnering with us and giving us this donation … I needed somebody to assist me in helping our community. When I got the call from Jeezy, he said ‘let me help you, help us… let me be your vehicle.’ I appreciate that so much because that really just speaks to his integrity, speaks to his passion on being a leader, and being a grown man, growing up. ”
