Steve Harvey believes young men from fatherless homes need more mentors and is taking to the New Beginnings Church of Chicago to find some.

Harvey, the 56-year-old comedian, host and best-selling author, is leading The Steve & Marjorie Harvey Foundation in hosting a Steve Harvey Mentoring Campaign event at the church Nov 14. Harvey will be joined by outspoken Pastor Corey Brooks of New Beginnings Church, who has spoken out about helping the troubled Chicago youth rife with gang violence.

With the help of Brooks and his church, Harvey hopes to recruit mentors to help young Chicago men in need who do not have fathers in their homes, according to a release from The Steve & Marjorie Harvey Foundation. The event will feature a discussion about the issues faced in the community where the entertainer hopes to inspire people become mentors in the Chicago metro area.

Harvey will follow up his mentor recruitment day at the church by taking to Chicago State University from Nov. 15-17 where he will host 100 young men in grades eight through 12. At the University, the young men who applied to take part in the event will be taught the principles of manhood while participating in educational and physical activities.
