Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. "For 100 young men from all over the country Steve Harvey's Mentoring Camp is the first step on an amazing journey. Every summer, a select group of boys are invited, all expenses paid, to Steve's 150 acre ranch in Dallas and introduced to new opportunities that will reshape their future. The criteria is that these are boys being raised primarily by their moms, a growing trend impacting both families and communities. Steve Harvey along with a group of educators, doctors and sports stars is determined to tackle this issue head on --with tough talk, surprising humor and real commitment. The Special features defining moments for 5 young men as they embarked on a transformative, emotional and unforgettable experience. Steve Harvey's own story, from being homeless to climbing to the highest levels of the entertainment industry, resonates in the lives of each of these young boys. If you think Steve Harvey is only about fun and games, the Special provides a real surprise. For the boys and their moms, the end of the Steve Harvey Mentoring Camp offered a new beginning and a promise of support where they did not expect to find it. The Special showed them spending a full week immersed in an environment focused on educational tools, life skills and emotional maturity. Most importantly, they were surrounded by people who cared --male mentors and role models from all walks of life who were determined to give these young men big dreams." Main Digital Channel.
