Recently, Steve Harvey, the noted comedian, three-time Daytime Emmy Award winner and television host, two-time best-selling author and celebrated radio host kicked off the 8th annual Steve Harvey Mentoring Program for Young Men with notable mentors and male role models including Choice Hotels CEO Steve Joyce, former NBA shooting guard Duane Ferrell and other community leaders.
A total of 220
fatherless male youths from across the country, aged 13-18, were invited
to attend a mentoring camp experience at Camp Grace in Roberta, GA
hosted by the Steve Harvey Mentoring Program for Young Men. During
the program, the teens live among male role models and are exposed to
educational and inspirational activities aimed to introduce them to
adulthood and teambuilding, instill self-respect and respect for others,
teach helpful life skills and introduce problem-solving techniques to
conquer obstacles and empower their futures.
Choice Hotels has supported the annual Steve Harvey Mentoring Program
for Young Men since its inaugural year and is now the program’s largest
donor and partner. In addition to providing complimentary hotel stays
for the mothers of participants, Harvey Foundation staff and volunteers,
Choice Hotels has contributed more than a quarter-million dollars to
the Steve & Marjorie Harvey Foundation in less than two years.
