The View cohost Sherri Shepherd will join other stars — including singer Keri Hilson, actress Terri Vaughn and comic Steve Harvey‘s wife Marjorie — as well as business leaders to mentor 100 teenage girls at the Steve and Marjorie Harvey Foundation’s first-annual Girls Who Rule The World Mentoring Weekend at Atlanta’s Omni CNN Center from October 22-24.

The three-day interactive seminar will “motivate the girls and equip them with resources and education needed to be successful.” It also says, “Girls will learn the importance of making healthy decisions to follow in the footsteps of these role models. Specifically, attendees will learn about professional etiquette, appropriate dress, and even making the right sexual choices that decrease health risks. They’ll be prompted to sustain a healthy dialogue with parents and guardians.”

“Since Georgia has the highest number of high school drop outs and third highest prostitution rates among teenage girls, GWRTW is designed to offer these girls the life skills needed to overcome teenage obstacles and establish a path to success,” says Harvey’s wife Marjorie, who also serves as president of the Foundation.
