Seth Curry takes on a new project in the community by launching an entrepreneurial program for kids throughout Dallas.
Last year, the Dallas Mavericks and free agent, Seth Curry, came to an agreement on a two-year deal that would allow Curry to finally have ample playing time. Curry came into Dallas and exceeded expectations by putting up career numbers across the board.
Now, Curry is giving back to the kids of Dallas by providing a new program that hits a glaring hole among youth.
On September 8th, the Seth Curry Foundation will be launching the Venture-Entrepeneurial Program that will be implemented throughout schools in the DFW Metroplex.
"The Dallas Mavericks released a press release of the event this week describing the new program as “a new educational initiative designed to teach students to think entrepreneurially about business and life. The program’s digital course uses case studies, interactive business simulations and personal development activities to teach important basic business skills.”"

Not only will the kids be taught how to think entrepreneurially, but they will be developing their own personal plans also. In the press release, it says that students will develop a personalized plan for their individual business, along with a roadmap for academic and career success.
Some players do charity events using other sports while other players host their own basketball camps. Curry is entering a different field by helping kids think about their careers and inspire them to dream big with their ideas.
As far as where the program will be implemented, the Mavericks announced that the interactive program will serve hundreds of middle school students in the 2017–2018 school year and will be implemented in schools throughout the DFW Metroplex.
Hats off to Curry for thinking outside of the box with his outreach by challenging kids to dream big in the business side of their futures.
