Raptors icon Vince Carter was a divisive player in Toronto throughout his 22-year NBA career He received thunderous applause for his nightly highlight role-playing games, but vicious boos when he was traded

He continues to make a mark here through his philanthropy, with his latest move likely being supported by all basketball fans

In collaboration with the Toronto-based Paris Media Group, Carter launched a scholarship and mentoring program in the greater Toronto area in September of this year for teenagers in grades 11 and 12. The scholarship is open worldwide and offers 25$ 000 per student

The program is open to all, but Carter “strongly encourages” the black community, indigenous communities, people of color and young women to apply

The press release promoting the program states that underrepresented minority groups often point to “lack of experience, awareness and opportunity” that prevents them from advancing in their chosen pathways. The scholarship seeks to level the playing field for students from marginalized communities create

“He understands that the community is hurt and that any opportunity of hope could inspire leaders, and perhaps even the next person who will change generations, what we hope for,” said Paris Dryden, Paris Executive Vice President and CEO Media Group said the star

Recipients attend world-class private schools with their tuition fees, and students receive internship and mentoring opportunities with company executives

The mentoring components and opportunities to shadow leaders make the scholarship unique as it will prepare students for college and university, Dryden said

Support programs for younger students ages 12-15 include summer camps for civics and careers, fashion and film, sports, music, and leadership

J Addison School in Markham was selected as the first participating school to start the program

“We want to stand up for a person who gives back to the community and tries to inspire others,” says Dryden

The scholarship criteria assume that applicants have a passion for a particular academic path This includes ratings of grades, personal character, community service, and submitting a 500-word essay

Carter is from Daytona Beach, Florida, playing for the Raptors from 1998-2004, the first few years of a remarkable career that lasted until 2020

The scholarship program was launched in Toronto as a tribute to Carter’s beginning of his career, and the Paris media group is hoping to bring it to the other seven US Cities where he played

Carter previously founded a nonprofit called the Embassy of Hope Foundation, through which he has run a number of community projects for the city

One of them was an NBA-sized basketball court in Etobicoke in Dixon Park that was open to youth of all ages His foundation also helped open Malvern’s Wickson Trail Park, a playground to encourage recreational activities around the city. p>

“As a parent who has a passion for and knows the power of education, I encourage you to apply and bring your best stuff,” Carter said in a video posted on Instagram
