In a plaid, hounds tooth suit only Steve Harvey could pull off, the best selling author kicked off The Steve Harvey Mentoring Weekend at the Davidson Conference Center on USC’s campus. The two day power pack is the condensed edition of the longer version, which takes place over four days in Dallas.

The mentoring program, which is primarily focused on young men from households led by single mothers, serves as a coming of age for many of the youngsters giving them the “Manhood Experience” many lack in their everyday lives.  100 kids, ranging from 13-18 years old, are carefully hand selected for the program and given the awesome opportunity to turn their lives around with the guidance of Steve Harvey and his foundation of support.

That type of turn around is exactly the sort of success Harvey hoped for with the program. “We’ve got kids that were failing who are now B students, kids who were very disrespectful to their mothers who have turned it around and become family protectors instead.  Lots of positive stories.”

With the help of friends like Cedric The Entertainer, Terrence J of BET fame, and Lamman Rucker, the weekend will be full of positive life lesson-type classes with fun activities thrown in for a bit of fun.

It comes as no surprise that yet another endeavor of the one time comedian would thrive, as Steve Harvey is no stranger to success.  His second relationship based book, Straight Talk, No Chaser: How to Find, Keep, and Understand a Man, debuted on the best sellers list at #1 and his first novel, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man spent a triumphant 64 weeks on the list, becoming the second best selling book of 2009. While Harvey knows his writing career is an amazing accomplishment, he is also well aware it comes at a cost as the media has scrutinized his own personal relationships and his ex wife has come forward with very public YouTube allegations.
