Comedian, best-selling author, top radio host and host of “Steve Harvey” and “Family Feud” Steve Harvey will host an even bigger program this year for his annual national Steve Harvey Mentoring Program for Young Men in Dallas, with a six-day program through Father’s Day weekend. The mission of The Steve and Marjorie Harvey Foundation is to provide outreach to fatherless children and young adults by promoting educational enrichment, one-on-one mentoring and global service initiatives that will cultivate the next generation of leaders. Running June 11th to June 16th, the Daytime Emmy nominee will welcome 100 young men who are without fathers for the 5th annual Steve Harvey National Mentoring Camp in Dallas, and mothers and chaperones in a concurrent Parent Program, for a variety of transformative mentoring experiences on his country ranch with himself and special guests including frank sessions on the principles of manhood, leadership, sports, health and wellness activities, dream building and more.
A dynamic program created by Harvey to provide guidance to young men 13-18 from single female-headed households who are experiencing some struggles as they’re navigating their adolescence, the Steve Harvey Mentoring Program brings to life a future without boundaries – as Harvey and a range of guests share a powerful dose of inspiration, tailor-made educational opportunities and real talk not found in any classroom – to empower young men in a positive, refreshing environment in taking charge of their futures and open their imaginations beyond what they already know.
Harvey says, “Bringing the young men out here, out of their everyday surroundings is an experience that gives them the opportunity to recharge and renew themselves, taking part in a program focused solely on them. Filled with a diverse number of activities, sessions, and role models from sports to business, education, fitness and more, no dream is too big to help them discover their potential, and help build the successful futures they’re meant for.”
With six days of powerful mentoring experiences, the young men chosen from the essay submissions will join in team building and physical fitness activities with the U.S. Army, sports sessions with golf, baseball, football and basketball games, fishing and aquatics with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, sessions on the sports industry, education, image, relationships, manhood and more with Harvey, the Gates Millennium Scholars Program, renowned educators Dr. Steve Perry and Dr. Marvin Thompson, Deion Sanders, and other special guests.
Mothers and chaperones will also take part in an uplifting Parent Program over the six days, which will include a welcome expo, informative cooking demonstrations, health screenings and workouts, inspiring and empowering sessions with Steve and Marjorie Harvey, Serita Jakes, Tammy Franklin, Tracey Edmonds, Judge Glenda Hatchett and more.
