The goal of “The Steve Harvey Mentoring Weekend for Young Men” is to break the misguided
traits of manhood and create a generation of men who are emotionally, socially and
The National Mentoring Camp's purpose is to share & teach the principles of manhood
and dream building to young men. The program helps young men to realize their potential
and envision a future where they are physically and emotionally equipped, responsible
and productive men.
The program includes a host of workshops that focus on personal responsibility, dream
building, and the importance of nutrition and physical fitness. In addition, the participants
are introduced to positive male role models who are leaders in various areas, including
business, their communities, entertainment and the military.

of young men from single female-headed households have participated in the Steve Harvey
Mentoring Weekend for Young Men.
