G.O.O.D. Music's announced over the weekend that he has launched a Michigan-based non-profit called the Sean Anderson Foundation.

Announced on Saturday (December 1) during a concent in Auburn Hills -- where he brought out surprise guests such as Kanye West, Common, J.Cole, Pusha T, Mike Posner and Teyana Taylor to the stage -- the Detroit rapper said he hopes to give back to his community and inspire.

"The mission of the Sean Anderson Foundation is to assist in the education, health, safety and well-being of Detroit area school-aged youth," said Sean. "I want to use my awareness to improve the situations in our school systems in particular. Many schools in Detroit have been closing or are in danger of closing. My school played an integral part of making me the man I am today, and without that education and extra care, I don't know where I would be today. So, I just want to help support the well being of young people in anyway that I can."

Detroit, like many other cities, has experienced national economic crisis. However, it was against this backdrop that 24-year-old Big Sean honed his skills as an entertainer, starting to rap as a 12-year old at the progressive Waldorf School in Detroit before enjoying stardom.

Headquartered in the motor city, the Sean Anderson Foundation's activities are run by the organization's officers and board of directors appointed by Sean and his mother Myra Anderson who serves as the President.
