At mentor camp for youth Steve Harvey talks about his mentor… his dad.
Steve Harvey Mentor Camp For Young Men
By Mac Hernandez:
When Jihad Muhammad (Dallas Weekly) and I arrived at the ranch we were escorted by a young volunteer from the Bronx. He was professional courteous and very thankful for us coming out. In fact all the volunteers we met were excited to talk about what they’ve been doing and it’s effect on the youth from across the nation. There was a group dressed up like Buffalo Soldiers who told their history to the teens. One of those soldiers told me how excited he was to see the kids fishing, knowing it was many of their first time. I got to see some of those teens fish and they were very excited. One teen talked to one of the man helping take his fish off the hook ” I bet you love fishing… so far I do”.
From the volunteers to the young boys, to Steve Harvey’s passion, you can see why this camp is important. When asked how men can help, Steve said they have only two needs.. “Men and Money… and if you don’t have money … you’re still a man” He stressed the importance of showing up, helping out and contributing if you can.
