*Jennifer Lopez and her boyfriend Alex Rodriguez have joined an effort to help turn kids of color into mini real estate moguls.

The couple will serve as mentors for Project Destined, which held a meeting on Sunday (March 4) at A-Rod’s former home Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York. Both attended along with local professionals in a joint effort to give back to kids in J.Lo’s old neighborhood.

“So today I spent the day in the Bronx at Yankee stadium with a very special group of people for a very impactful project called @projectdestined,” Jennifer posted on Instagram, alongside pics from the gathering.

“The project teaches financial literacy to children in neighborhoods like I grew up in… so people from Harvard business school teach and mentor these kids on how to buy and own real estate and by the end of the program they own a part of a building in their own community in which the profits they make go toward their college educations…it shows them they have a choice they don’t have to be a tenant…you can be an owner!!!”

The singer/actress continued, “But it’s so much more than I could ever write here… it’s a game changer for anyone to be apart (sic) of this program! I am proud to be a part of it along with @arod… here on a Sunday to be part of letting these kids know that anything is possible and sky is the limit!!! #todaywasagoodday #empoweringouryouth #empoweringourcommunity #givebacktime #mentorship”.
