LeBron James Partners With Crypto.com To Provide Technology Learning Programs For Akron Kids
LeBron James, an NBA star, has announced a long-term partnership between Crypto.com and his namesake foundation to help Akron kids enroll in the school and participate in his related programs. These programs teach them not only how cryptocurrency works, but the technology behind it and all the ways it will impact their lives and potential career paths in the future.
“It’s been amazing to see how many doors we’ve been able to open for my I Promise students and their families through the work we do with our partners and what we’re building with House Three Thirty,” James told the Beacon Journal through a spokesperson. “It’s important to me that we keep opening those doors – especially when it comes to Web3 and our digital future.“
“I’m still learning as everything keeps evolving, and now with Crypto.com, I want to make sure my kids and families are part of that as well.”
Students in the I Promise program, which works to keep academically at-risk students in the classroom on the path to not only a high school diploma but also a college degree, will learn about the technology and related career fields in virtual and in-person settings from experts provided by Crypto.com.
The partnership and training opportunities will extend not only to the students but also to their families as a part of the foundation’s holistic approach to focusing on individual children and their siblings and parents as well to help build stronger and more stable families in Akron, where James grew up.
“Blockchain technology is revolutionizing our economy, sports and entertainment, the art world, and how we engage with one another. I want to ensure that communities like the one I come from are not left behind,” James added, “Crypto.com and I are aligned on the need to educate and support my community with the information and tools they need for inclusion. I’m looking forward to working with them to bring these opportunities to my community.”
