Much love to Lil Durk for always giving back to his community!
The Chicago native’s Neighborhood Heroes Foundation launched its Career Readiness program and partnered with several organizations to help change the lives of twenty students. On Monday, May 2, Lil Durk shared the news on his Instagram after surprising twenty kids from the South Side of Chicago with White Sox suite tickets to the game against the Los Angeles Angels where Lil Durk threw the opening pitch. The Chicago White Sox beat the Los Angeles Angels 3-0 with fans thanking Lil Durk for being the good luck charm.
“All these students will be apart of our newest program where we’ll be taking them to HBCU Colleges & exposing them to different careers,” shared Neighborhood Heroes.
According to Vibe, the twenty students will also fly to New York City to meet with Sony and Alamo Records executives before meeting with the New York Knicks! Then the students will embark on an HBCU College tour in ATL to help them familiarize themselves with a few historic institutions that have accredited college programs that’ll support their journey. The grand finale will end at the NASCAR Playoffs at Talladega Superspeedway (YellaWood 500).
Lil Durk’s Neighborhood Heroes foundation partnered with various individuals, companies, and organizations including Sigma Omega Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, the White Sox, CHAMPS Male Mentoring Program, Bubba Wallace, and Michael Jordan’s 23 Eleven Racing Team.
