Mentoring Weekend
100 young men from Atlanta and the surrounding counties, made their way to Morehouse College to participate in the Steve Harvey Mentoring Weekend Atlanta.  As with the flagship Dallas Camp, this program was also designed to teach and share the principles of manhood to young men to help them realize their potential and envision a future where they are strong, responsible and productive men. 

 

The young men were introduced to local businessmen, Wade Ford Owner, Steve Ewing, Cardiologist, Dr. Christopher Leggett, actor Ronreaco Lee and attorney Hakim Hilliard who all shared their roadmap to success in our ‘You Can be Me’ workshop.  They were then given a glimpse into the mindset of one of today’s most successful Hollywood producers, Will Packer, who gave them a birds eye view on his climb to success, from staying focused on his dream even in the face of adversity; staying motivated during times of difficulty and using his setbacks as a springboard to success.

K&G hosted a Head to Toe Workshop and Challenge where the boys learned the secrets to looking good and unlocking the power of their image from Rich Rosa, the head of the Steve Harvey Suit Collection, and William Phoenix, Mr. Harvey’s personal stylist. For many of our young men this was their first time on a college campus and Morehouse Student Ambassadors gave them guided tours. The young men closed out their day with a male only town hall meeting on the roles and responsibilities of manhood with Mr. Harvey. 
 
On Sunday the young men and their families participated in a very powerful closing program.  A screening of “Our America with Lisa Ling” focusing on African American men and incarceration, followed by an awe inspiring Keynote address from Dr. Dennis Kimbro, Professor of Business at Clark-Atlanta University who challenged the young men to “Find out what makes the great Great.”
