INTRODUCTION
The NEXT Steps Youth Entrepreneur Program (NSYEP) wishes to partner with the Kroc Community
Center to serve as in-house community outreach coordinators to help produce and promote a wide variety
of multi-cultural, message driven, family oriented entertainment activities that celebrate the spiritual
connection between art and food.

After presenting this proposed concept dated October 21, 2010, the proposal details included should 1)
serve as the initial terms of a future operating agreement between NSYEP/HP and the Kroc Community
Center.

Our Mission
The NEXT Steps Youth Entrepreneur Training Program (NSYEP) is positioned to become a governing
body of one of the largest “at risk” youth business development educational programs in the Metro
Atlanta Area. Our goal is to teach economic and community development, business plan development
and event management coordination skills to students that 1) live in underserved and underrepresented
communities and 2) who have expressed an interest in pursing S.T.E.M.-based (science, technology,
engineering and mathematics) opportunities in urban agriculture and social entrepreneurism.

seed monies for the student’s ventures and activities and cover administrative and operational costs. The
NEXT Steps Youth Entrepreneur Training Program (NSYEP) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization.




Rationale For Our Success
High rates of food insecurity occur in many of the South Fulton County neighborhoods in Metropolitan
Atlanta. In many of the poorest neighborhoods, chain‐affiliated supermarkets have closed their outlets to
be replaced, if at all, by small, high‐priced independent stores that frequently carry little to no fresh
produce. Reports from the Department of Community Health show that poverty rates are much higher

than state and national rates and are highest in areas where supermarkets serve 26,157 people – more than
three times the ratio for Georgia (7,664). In total, only six supermarkets located throughout South Fulton
County serve a population of 156,946 people.

By targeting blighted communities that suffer from food insecurities, NSYEP can positively address three
key barriers that currently exist in these markets: lack of access to fresh produce, limited income
opportunities and poor eating habits and food choices.

Our objectives are:
• Establish a donation network of local growers, retailers, wholesalers, and processors around South
   Fulton County at or near schools that have Community In Schools Atlanta guidance counselors
• Partner with incubator farms, community gardens, farmers markets and mobile food stands that will
   employ "at risk" youth
• Collect over four million pounds of food the first year of operation; Increase collection amount by
   20% each year to effectively distribute the food to low-income families in our target markets.
• Acquire $200,000 of start-up funding through corporate, private charities and government financial
   support.
• Raise an additional $100,000 in fundraising activity.


MARKET ANALYSIS
THE CITY OF ATLANTA URBAN REDEVELOPMENT
AREA (JULY 2010)
Renewal Communities of Atlanta
There are areas within the City of Atlanta that are still
impoverished or underdeveloped with deteriorated
vehicular and pedestrian infrastructure, minimal street-
level activity and community services, and no “sense of
place”. This document identifies an area within the City
referred to as the “Atlanta Urban Redevelopment Area”
where additional investment is necessary to spearhead
transformation and help to sustain the economic viability
of the City. The Atlanta Urban Redevelopment Area has
significant poverty, unemployment, home foreclosures, or
general distress; and has already been federally designated under the American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act of 2009 (the Recovery Act) as a Recovery Zone and as an Empowerment Zone or
Renewal Community.

Key Barriers
Scattered throughout the City’s Urban Redevelopment area are numerous signs of neglect that include
lack of transportation, connectivity and infrastructure deficiencies and/or obsolescence and disrepair,
abundance of surface parking lots, vacant lots and storefronts, unoccupied and deteriorated buildings, tax
delinquency, and other adverse economic and social conditions. Furthermore, deteriorated or abandoned
housing stock and property foreclosures hinder the stability and revitalization of existing communities.
Paradoxically, often these conditions are found in segments located next to successful developments and
communities.

Structural Deficiencies and Deterioration of Buildings
Throughout the Atlanta Urban Redevelopment Area, there are many structures, mostly residential units, in
dilapidated condition (See Map 4). Approximately 458 parcels The City of Atlanta Urban Redevelopment
Plan – July, 2010 7 totaling 145 acres have been identified as having dilapidated structures. Many of these
structures are concentrated in English Avenue, Pittsburgh and South Atlanta neighborhoods. Along both
Auburn Avenue and Edgewood Avenue there are many unoccupied, under-occupied or physically
neglected structures. Throughout the downtown area, vacant storefronts are common.

Key Benefits of Geographic Location
NPU V has a unique geographic location as it is close in proximity to Downtown Atlanta. Through its
development, it must become connected as another key community model and venue that will draw
crowds to the Downtown Atlanta area. As one of the most diverse and dynamic cities in the southern
region of the United States, Atlanta has experienced tremendous transformation following the 1996
Summer Olympics. Recent developments within the City include new office, commercial, residential, and
cultural facilities such as the new Southern Company Headquarters, Museum Tower and Children’s
Museum, Twelve Centennial Park, the World of Coca- Cola, the Georgia Aquarium, Ivan Allen Plaza,
Alexan 360, Renaissance at Sweet Auburn, Historic Westside Village, Northyards Business Park,
Castleberry Pointe, and the Pryor Road Corridor among others. In addition, the Atlanta Housing
Authority has created the following mixed-income communities, among others: Centennial Place, Ashley
Collegetown and the Gardens at Collegetown, Capitol Gateway, The Villages at Carver, The Villages at
Castleberry Hill, Magnolia Park, Heritage Station, McDaniel Crossing, and Veranda at Auburn Pointe.

TARGET MARKET1 & COMMUNITY TRENDS
Pittsburgh Community (NPU V)
Neighborhood Planning Unit V (NPU-V) includes the six
intown Atlanta neighborhoods of Adair Park,
Mechanicsville, Peoplestown, Pittsburgh, and
Summerhill/Capitol Homes. These neighborhoods are
some of Atlanta's oldest residential areas with a rich
history that mirrors much of Atlanta's history. The
neighborhoods were formed during the decades
following the Civil War. As Atlanta regained its
importance as a railroad crossroads for the Southeast, the
NPU-V neighborhoods grew up around the East
Tennessee, Virginia, and Georgia rail yard. Today, the
CSX and Southern rail lines continue to form portions of
the borders of NPU-V neighborhoods while also serving
as the dividing line between some of the neighborhoods.2

The area overall has a healthy mix of residential,
commercial, and industrial space - some of which is
already utilized, some of which is vacant and holds
potential for future community development. Such development could include a large supermarket or
other type of commercial development which are amenities local residents currently lack in their

neighborhood. It includes several important community resources, including a Atlanta Healthy Start
Initiative location in the Center for Black Women's Wellness which sends Resource Moms to expectant
and new mothers in the neighborhoods in order to connect them to health care and other supports.

The Pittsburgh Community (NPU V) is identified as a target community in the City of Atlanta’s Urban
Redevelopment Plan (July 2010). As the plan specifically regards historic & cultural resources, the goal
of the city is to restore, commemorate, and interpret the varied artistic, cultural, and historical events, and
the associated people and place that established and sustained the various communities in the Atlanta
Urban Redevelopment Area through the years; and situate the community for increased artistic and
cultural development in the future.

Their objectives are to:
1. Recognize the special character of the National Register of Historic Places listed and eligible areas
   and properties through appropriate guidelines, standards and criteria consistent with the historic built
   environment.
2. Preserve, revitalize, and rehabilitate the City’s designated Landmark and Historic Districts in such a
   way as to reflect and reinforce the respective historic neighborhood characters and the often unique
   historical relationship between the residential, commercial, institutional, and industrial uses.
3. Preserve, revitalize, and rehabilitate the numerous City designated Landmark and Historic Buildings
   as significant and valuable components of their communities and regional resources.
4. Elevate the physical appearance and function of the major transportation corridors and existing hubs
   of commercial activity as the centers of their respective communities.
5. Create an easily accessible cultural and entertainment destination rooted in Centennial Olympic Park
   and enhanced by the vitality contained in the surrounding historic areas, including the Martin Luther
   King, Jr. Landmark District area, as well as the Peachtree, Luckie and Marietta Street corridors.

NPU V Demographics 3
According to the 2000 Census, the population of the NPU-V neighborhoods totaled 15,825, just slightly
less than the 15,960 residents in 1990. With 42.8 percent of NPU-V families living in poverty, as
compared to only 26 percent of families in the City of Atlanta, the neighborhoods have a high
concentration of poverty. More than 92 percent of NPU-V residents were African American in 2000. In
recent years, NPU-V has been becoming more diverse. Between 1990 and 2000, the population of races
other than African American and white more than tripled and the number of Hispanics more than

doubled. While racial diversity is increasing in all neighborhoods except for Summerhill/Capitol Homes
and Peoplestown and ethnic diversity is increasing in all of the neighborhoods, the increases were most
dramatic in Adair Park. The number of people who defined their races as other than white or African
American on the census in Adair Park increased from 18 to 405 while the number of Hispanics increased
from 8 to 41. Much of this increase in diversity in Adair Park is the result of immigrants making their
home in the neighborhood. Since 1990, approximately 450 foreign-born residents have settled there, the
large majority of whom (355) are from Vietnam.

The neighborhoods have been changing rapidly even since the 2000 Census. Capitol Homes, the 700-unit
public housing complex in Summerhill/Capitol Homes was demolished in 2002 in preparation for the
construction of Capitol Gateway, a mixed-income complex that includes 1,000 residential units, 45,000
square feet of offices, shops, and restaurants, and a youth development center. All of the families who
lived in Capitol Homes have been relocated since the Census. Similarly, the Pittsburgh Civic League
Apartments in Pittsburgh were vacated in 2004 in preparation for redevelopment, displacing the largest
concentration of families with children in the neighborhood. Heritage Station, which was built to replace
PCLA, was opened to residents in 2007.

Neighborhood Planning Unit V (NPU-V) is where many of Atlanta’s most vulnerable children are
concentrated in -- the neighborhoods of Adair Park, Capitol Homes, Mechanicsville, Peoplestown,
Pittsburgh, and Summerhill. Once, these historic neighborhoods were home to many of the city’s leading
African-American families. Today, indicators of family economic success, school readiness, student
success, and affordable housing are all considerably lower than those for the city of Atlanta as a whole:
according to U.S. Census data, 59 percent of children in NPU-V live in poverty, compared to 38 percent
in Atlanta overall; 53 percent of adults have a high school diploma or the equivalent, compared with
77percent in Atlanta overall; and 22 percent of adults have postsecondary education, compared to
54percent in Atlanta overall. Fifty-four percent of babies in NPU-V are born to mothers with less than a
twelfth grade education, compared to 33 percent in Atlanta overall.

PENETRATING THE MARKET & MEETING THEIR NEEDS
The Kroc Community Center
The Salvation Army Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center Atlanta opened a 53,500 square-foot
worship, arts, education, and recreation facility located at 967 Dewey Street in the Pittsburgh community
of Atlanta, Ga. The Salvation Army Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center Atlanta serves as a
beacon of hope and a place of refuge for the spiritually, creatively, and physically hungry members and
community alike.

A Kroc/NSYEP Partnership
NSYEP wishes to partner with the Kroc Community Center to take full advantage of the unique amenities
the center provides to produce measureable results that are positive, impactful, and immediately meets the
needs of the community located within NPU V especially as it relates to creating jobs, picquing interests
in S.T.E.M. careers, initiating youth-based community development projects, and starting community
gardens and urban farm related activities and businesses.

In conjunction with the Kroc Community Center, NSYEP will bring new and existing partnerships with
the City’s Urban Redevelopment Commission, the Neighborhood Associations, the Mayor’s Youth
Program, Georgia Teen Works Program, Atlanta Police Department PAL Program, Atlanta Parks and
Recreation Department and the Atlanta Convention and Visitor’s Bureau. These working relationships
will compliment the “work hard, play hard” mentality of today’s enterprising youth while showcasing
their talents and ambitions. Their ventures and projects will help maintain enthusiasm regarding the long-
term future plans for the Kroc Center and NPU V.

Key Benefits of Kroc/NSYEP Partnership
The NEXT Steps Youth Entrepreneur Training Program (NSYEP) is positioned to become a governing
body of one of the largest “at risk” youth business development educational programs in the Metro
Atlanta Area. Our goal is to teach economic and community development, business plan development
and event management coordination skills to students that 1) live in underserved and underrepresented
communities and 2) who have expressed an interest in pursing S.T.E.M.-based (science, technology,
engineering and mathematics) opportunities in urban agriculture and social entrepreneurism.

Projected Growth
We anticipate an annual growth rate of 2% over the next five years. We are aware that summer months
will be our busiest due to summer camp training. This will also be our best time to host revenue-
generating activities and events.


ABOUT NSYEP, INC
OUR NICHE MARKET
NSYEP will target 6th through 12th graders within Metro Atlanta’s public, private, charter and non-
traditional schools. Our target market size is the equivalent of the total number of youth and their
immediate and extended family members and caretakers that are supported by the Communities In
Schools, after school and Saturday programs. This equates to 0.09% of the total number of schools and
approximately 4,786 students and their families.

The NSYEP training experience will provide real world collaborations and networking opportunities with
student mentors, professional scientists, local business owners, government officials, labs, the Internet,
and college institutions and aid in community service graduation credits. The exercise helps students meet
the objectives identified in the Atlanta Public School’s Career Development Critical Components.

When we launched NSYEP, we were advised to conduct pilots of our training programs to determine if
there was a need and/or a demand for our services. From September 2008 to July 31, 2010, NSYEP
conducted marketing activities to promote our programs. We were successful in securing opportunities to
partner with the following groups and organizations to test and measure the effectiveness of our training
program. NOTE: NSYEP waived the $35 membership fees and paid for the costs out of pocket, so no
funds were raised during these activities. The costs are recorded as a loss and included in our start-up
operating budget.

The Community Involvement Growth Strategy (C.I.G.S.) Organizational Growth Model
The C.I.G.S. Organizational Growth Model can be applied to businesses and organizations in any trade or
industry. A customized C.I.G.S. model assists businesses with:
• Improving their internal and external communications and operations systems by re-visiting, creating
    or re-creating their 5-10 year business plan
• Developing a sense of fellowship, teamwork and camaraderie within their organization
• Defining the power and identity of every human and entity resource accessible to them “within their
    own home”
• Promoting individual, team and community-based growth on a personal and professional level
• Connecting each entity with other members of the community with similar business goals and
    strategies

OUR PILOT TRAINING SESSIONS 2009-PRESENT
Jumpstart/Camp Best Friends Summer Training Pilot (Summer 2009)
Location: Adamsville Recreation Center
Total Hours: 4
Costs: $35/hr (Instructor Fee)
Total Cost: $140

NSYEP conducted two training sessions with 36 girls ages 9-12 at the Jumpstart/Camp Best Friends
Summer Training Program. Part of our session’s activities focused on helping them develop their mission
Because we introduced business development strategies and explained that being entrepreneurs means
being problem solvers, we were able to 1) demonstrate how the urban agriculture industry and the health
benefits of community gardening identifies social, health and environmental issues or problems in their
own backyards and communities and 2) help students create and apply solutions to those issues that
translate into new jobs and services they created themselves. We were also able to deconstruct the
negative self-perceptions they had of themselves and their chances of successfully entering college or the
workforce.

NSYEP/CIS Atlanta In-School Training Pilot (Fall 2009)
Location: West End PACE Academy, Joseph E. Lowery, Atlanta, GA
Total Hours: 1hr Weekly (5 Weeks)
Costs: $35/hr (Instructor Fee); $15 Training Kits
Total Cost: $295

NSYEP conducted four training sessions with eight 11th and 12th grade students at West End PACE
Academy (Alternative School) that incorporated the first introduction to the urban agriculture industry
(via The Good Shepherd Community Garden). Activities focused introducing students to the power of
perception through interactive exercises. Students were then instructed on how to define the scope of a
business project or activity and how to identify different levels of resources (Target Market Exercise).
Students were then introduced to the C.I.G.S. Strategic Organizing Model to develop their life’s “big
picture” and were guided though how to conduct an inventory of “backyard” resources. Students
conducted quick fire challenges after receiving instructions on how to develop their mission statement and
their purpose/passions in life. Lastly, they were introduced to the ten most critical components required to
create a business plan and tied it to the Good Shepherd Community Garden as a springboard to launch
their businesses. The students, who attended PACE Academy as a last chance alternative to graduate due
to prior behavior problems, stated that the program helped them understand the importance of staying in
school, building positive relationships and setting a goal. They also mentioned they felt more hopeful in
achieving their goals now that they have a plan.

NSYEP/CIS Atlanta In-School Training Pilot (Winter & Spring 2009/2010)

    success in a career and in life.
•   MSCD7-2: Students investigated Georgia’s Career Program Concentrations that aligned with their
    personal assessments and identified possible career pathways.

    a diverse and challenging world.

Environmental Design Pilot (Apr-May 2010)
Location: TECH High School, Memorial Drive, Atlanta, GA
Total Hours: 8 Weeks
Costs: $35/hr (Instructor Fee); Training Materials;
Total Cost: $5,000

NSYEP worked with Mr. Alan Gravitt, Engineering Director of TECH High and 12 of his engineering
students to design the environmental landscaping and operation of the new Metro Atlanta Urban Farm.
This exercise introduced students to urban agriculture and taught them how to apply their wide array of
S.T.E.M.-based careers to the current and future trends and opportunities available throughout the
industry. The result was overwhelmingly surprising as senior students that were interested in bio-
weapons, security, logistics planning, and engineering expressed their desire to add agriculture as an
understudy when they go to college. Other students expressed interests in continuing their relationship
and design projects with the farm when they returned to school in the Fall.

Summer Training Program Pilot6 (Summer FY2010)
Digital Documentary Link: http://www.nextstepsyep.org/NSA_SummerCamp.html
Curriculum Designed by Ray Williams, Mirror Image Mentoring
Location: The Metro Atlanta Urban Farm, College Park, GA 30337
Total Hours: 320
Costs: $15.62 (Instructor Fee); Student salaries ($8.50/hr) paid by the Mayor’s Youth Program and
Georgia Teen Work Programs
Total Cost: $30,840

NSYEP secured ten students from the Mayor’s Youth Program and Georgia Teen Work Programs that
had expressed an interest in attaining a S.T.E.M.-based career. The students’ career aspirations included:
civil, chemical, mechanical and computer engineering, nursing, forensic science and professional sports.
Students ranged from ages 13-17 and were in the 9th-12th grades. Students will be attending Douglass,
Therrell, Maynard Jackson, Mays, and Tri-Cities High Schools in the Fall 2010. The students adventures
were documented via written journals they kept daily. Photographs of all of their interactions and
activities were taken and posted on the NSYEP website to demonstrate the varying degrees of
development they gained. Three of the ten students were motivated to begin or take over the maintenance
of their gardens at their own homes.

OUR CURRENT & FUTURE TRAINING PARTNERSHIPS
Partnership Opportunities with BDI; Communities In Schools Atlanta; Wilson Academy & TECH High
• In August 2010, NSYEP was invited by Mr. Creed Pannell to discuss the possibility of affiliating our
    business plan development training session with the Business Development Leadership Institute (a
    Wachovia Banks supported project).
• Through the Communities In Schools programs at Harper Archer Middle School and West End
    PACE Academy, NSYEP was asked to return for the FY2010-2011 school year as a continuation of
    the training sessions provided in FY2009-2010.
• In September 2010, NSYEP will serve as an extension of the Economics Course at the Wilson
    Academy (Decatur, GA), Blackstone Academy (College Park, GA) and the Engineering Class at
    TECH High (Atlanta, GA)

OUR PROGRAMS & SERVICES
OUR URBAN AGRICULTURE PLATFORM
The NSYEP urban agriculture platform is designed
to create collaborative, community-based
partnerships that promote outdoor activities and
healthier lifestyles in under-represented and
underserved communities within Metro Atlanta. In
addition, the services rendered to these communities
have led to the understanding and desire to develop
a comprehensive platform surrounding the global
movement towards greener technologies, products
and services. Implementation would require a re-
introduction and re-education of its overarching
benefits that would proportionately improve all
communities within Metro Atlanta especially those
suffering from disparities in health and education.

Our service and education programs provide solutions that will bridge community development initiatives
and social entrepreneurism.
• Agriculture, fitness and organic farming education and training workshops to equip families with
    healthier food choices and local career opportunities within the community.
• Education, demonstrations and incorporation of alternative energy sources and the importance of
    recycling and landsharing.
• Camping and outdoor activities to encourage the receptiveness of residents to adopt healthier
    lifestyles
• Youth entrepreneur and computer technology training programs to develop business management,
    special event management and computer training skills.
• Personal hygiene and etiquette classes
• Development of local greenhouses and fruit, vegetable and herb stands
• After school, summer and weekend programs to provide hands on farming and gardening experiences
    to community families.
• Mentoring programs to provide tutoring, community service, and partnership opportunities to assist
    local school systems with gardening workshops and educating students about the benefits and impact
    of urban agriculture.

•   A community home purchase and lease-purchase program that offers affordable, eco-friendly homes
    equipped with renewable and/or recyclable energy, amenities, interior and exterior furnishings that
    reduce cost of living and assist with preserving the environment

Key Benefits
By increasing the common knowledge surrounding the many benefits of community gardening and
community organizing, we can infuse programs that support the greening and sustainability movement.
By assigning gardening plots to youth and senior community groups, we will bridge intergenerational
communication gaps. By extending our corporate and small business gardening program, we can broaden
the reach of our message by teaching and facilitating backyard, rooftop, and raised garden projects to
schools, hotels, businesses, nursing homes, health care facilities, gymnasiums, and chronic disease
treatment organizations. Most importantly, our partnership with other urban agriculture programs and
services will allow the gardening initiative to serve as a key distribution point for disadvantaged farmers
across the country – providing them a facility to deliver their goods that go directly to businesses and the
general public.

Rationale To Our Success
Our programs and services are also designed specifically to benefit the community members and residents
of NPU V. They simultaneously serve as a complimentary program that maximizes the full gamet of
services and amenities offered by the Kroc Community Center. For continued support, NSYEP will draw
upon the executive teams, retailers, students and residents already housed in the Downtown area which
includes: corporate and government buildings, restaurants, office complexes, hotels, lofts, colleges, and
churches. We anticipate capturing 35% (annually) of the total population within a 7 mile radius (192,267)
of the facility which include visitors, special guests and patrons of Atlanta Area Technical College and
Atlanta Metropolitan College.
• NSYEP will host events in the cafe to support youth projects and fundraisers.
• NSYEP/HP will host meetings and training sessions within the facilities to maximize use of its
     amenities and cater to the entertainment needs of those we wish to solicit for support: executives and
     their teams, community organizations, tourists and NPU-V residents.
• NSYEP/HP will develop special promotions and activities that compliment and promote the sporting
     activities of the Dome, Phillip’s Arena & CNN Center, convention and trade show traffic from the
     Atlanta Gift Market, guests that frequent Centennial Park, The World of Coca-Cola and the Georgia
     Aquarium so as to connect the NPU V community to Downtown Atlanta’s tourism and trade
     industries. Out niche, of course, will be our ability to blend the passion of the game, sports
     celebrities, entertainers, etc. with the growing, sexy trends in the culinary industry (i.e., Top Chef,
     Master Chef, Hell’s Kitchen, The Food Network, Cake Boss, Food & Wine Magazine, “foodies”,
     etc…) via our gardening programs and initiatives.
• NSYEP/HP will also provide display and sales opportunities for artists and designers to present their
     collections of merchandise especially as it relates to crop art, youth expression and family connection
     (Sankofa).

•   NSYEP will conduct Train-The-Trainer sessions with the APD officers to familiarize them with the
    NSYEP training materials (business plan outline, CIGS Model, event planning checklist) to help

    jargon, etc.) with business and corporate terminology (i.e, “the hood” = target market, scope, etc.)
•   The CSI initiative will tie urban farming and community gardening directly to social issues that
    negatively impact participant’s communities and empower them to develop solutions to solve them
    via careers, inventions, innovations, and changes in behavior, diet and community service.

Modeled after the World Fair, NSYEP will host Science Fairs and Famer’s markets to display the latest
trends in technology, student inventions and innovations, and entrepreneur activities in produce, services
and products that resolve social issues and encourage economic and community development.

The Power of Perception Speaker & Workshop Series
The Power of Perception Speaker Series is a communication tool designed to help at-risk students
understand the challenges that are stacked against them – starting with a shockingly honest discussion
about how “society” perceives them. The final result comes in a written mission statement – in their own
handwriting – that helps them develop a plan with laser-like focus on how they will pursue their careers
and accomplish their educational goals and entrepreneurial ventures.

Beat This! Chef Contest and Sample Tasting Event
Bi Weekly; Wednesdays from 5:30p-7:30p
Food preparation and exploration will serve as our draw in the
culinary industry to ensure that the Kroc Center’s menu items gain
the reputation of offering seasonal and trending specialties introduced
through an in-house faux cooking reality show. Our featured
“celebrity” chefs will be the in-house chefs at the Kroc Center and a
guest professional judge referred by Chef Desmond Fannin of
Sodexo and Chef Joseph Perrymon (retired) from Atlanta Technical
College. (Both chefs serve as NSYEP’s Board members and
supporters.) The “show” will occur during Happy Hour where
samples of each chef’s meal will be provided to 150 pre-selected
guests. Guests will purchase a $5 ticket to taste and vote on their
choice of best sample – deciding if the competing chef’s dish beat
our staple dish or not by voting “Beat It” or “Needs to Beat It”. The
competition will go on throughout the year and end in a semi-final
and final round of competition and Silver Wisk Award.

The $5 ticket will pay for a sample and one drink (non-acoholic soda, water or tea) of their choice. The
winner’s dish and bio will be featured as a special menu item for the following two weeks. All sample
challenges will be based on a standing menu item of the Kroc Community Center. NSYEP/HP will
provide aspiring chefs an opportunity to sign up for the challenge, maintain a leader board, feature
competing artists and chef judges and will create a mailing list and Facebook page for updates on the
winners will try to create a comparable dish using the same or better ingredients. Our Happy Hour crowd
will serve as the public judges.

cooking reality show, NSYEP and a guest judge will moderate the tasting activities. Both chefs will be
introduced and allowed to tell the audience what they are sampling (i.e., Top Chef style). Both chefs will
