Kevin Durant opened the College Track at The Durant Center, an after-school facility, in his hometown of Prince George's County, Maryland.
The facility features a $10 million endowment from Durant and will provide scholarships, tutoring, and emotional and financial support to help students get into college.
The inaugural class had 69 students.
“As a basketball player, it’s easy for us to say, ‘Let’s create an AAU team or let’s do a camp.’ As you get older, you start to look for bigger ways to impact. I see my peers, and not just NBA players but athletes in general, but just trying to push the future forward, push the youth forward,” said Durant.
