Chance The Rapper is launching a new education-themed awards show that will honor teachers, parents, principals, and students who “convey leadership.”
“Quality education for public schools is the most important investment a community can make,” the rapper said at Chicago’s Harold Washington Cultural Center, four days before the school year begins in the city.
“So today, all of us at SocialWorks are excited to take our biggest, boldest step yet and announce our first-ever grants from the New Chance Fund. Today we’re giving a new chance to kids in 20 more schools across our city.”
