DALLAS, TX – Top radio personality and Family Feud TV host Steve Harvey brought together over 100 young men who live in single, female headed households to participate in his 5th Annual National Steve Harvey Mentoring Program for Young Men.   Held during Father’s Day weekend from June 11th-16th in Dallas, the young men took part in empowering sessions, frank talk, sports, health and wellness, and other activities on the principles and responsibilities of manhood, leadership, team building, education and more.

The U.S. Army provided physical fitness sessions, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service held sports sessions with golf, baseball, basketball and fishing; and sessions about manhood, dating, image and careers helped the young men navigate struggles as they prepare for adulthood, spark their imaginations and build a successful future without boundaries.
