I. Organization Overview
a. mISSIon
Your Kids Organization (YKO) is a non-profit organization that was founded in 2000 to
develop	and	provide	programs	to	support	the	enrichment	of	kids’	lives.	YKO	teaches	
our	youth	to	honor	each	other’s	contribution	to	society.	By	strengthening	from	within,	
we	intend	to	guide	youth	into	responsible	adults	who	honor	all	spiritual	beliefs	and	
philosophies	regardless	of	race,	sex,	or	economic	class.	

Local	programs	include	visiting	and	learning	about	historic	sites.	An	annual	study	
abroad	seminar	allows	local	youth	to	build	life	skills	in	a	foreign	country	while	living	in	
a	different	culture.	In	addition	to	exploring	historic	sites	in	their	host	country,	students	
will	be	guided	through	programming	to	foster	personal	and	professional	growth	and	
development.	These	program	values	include:

YKO	Student	International	Exchange	Program	(SIEP)	is	dedicated	to	giving	each	student	
a	head	start	in	intercultural	communication	from	high	school,	helping	them	develop	
skills	to	succeed	in	college	by	encouraging	an	exploration	and	understanding	of	
different	peoples	around	world.	

As	SIEP	ambassadors,	these	students	will	learn	to	adapt	to	new	environments,	by	living	
with	a	host	family	in	their	chosen	country—a	true	adventure	for	students	who	may	have	
never	traveled	outside	of	California.

As	Hillary	Clinton	wrote	years	ago,	it	takes	a	village	to	raise	a	child	and	in	today’s	
world,	that	is	a	global	village,	According	to	a	recent	report	published	by	the	Institute	
of	International	Education	some	160,920	American	students	studied	abroad	in	2001-02,	
an	increase	of	nearly	5%	from	the	previous	year.	This	is	a	relatively	small	percentage	of	
college	students,	yet	studying	abroad	enhances	a	student’s	ability	to	adapt	to	any	new	
environment,	whether	at	home	or	abroad---and	that	adaptability	will	serve	them	well	as	
they	complete	their	education	and	join	a	workforce	that	is	also	increasingly	diverse	in	a	
global	marketplace.	

SEIP	allows	at-risk	high	school	juniors	and	seniors	students	from	Los	Angeles,	Calif.	to	
travel	to	other	countries	for	a	4-week,	focused	intensive	study	and	enrichment	program.	
Students	are	selected	by	teachers,	based	on	the	students’	commitment	to	success	
and	growth.	To	qualify	for	SEIP,	these	students	have	overcome	obstacles	and	already	
worked	to	change	adversity	into	opportunity.

II. Program Objectives
a. oBJectIveS
The	YKO	Student	International	Exchange	Program	(SIEP)		seeks	to	give	students	a	head	
start	in	global	intercultural	communication,	helping	them	develop	skills	to	succeed	in	
college	by	encouraging	an	exploration	and	understanding	of	different	peoples	around	
world. The program specifically targets children from urban areas and “Inner City”
youths	to	provide	them	with	an	opportunity	to	travel	and	explore	life	in	other	parts	of	
the	world.		

The	summer	2007	Jamaica	program	aims	to	expose	the	participants	to	a	country	
that	has	a	rich	heritage	and	close	links	to	the	United	States.	The	learning	experience	
will	involve	an	immersion	in	the	cultural	and	social	life	of	the	communities	across	
the country. The society is filled with varied experiences and sometimes seemingly
contradictory	forms	all	occupying	the	same	physical	and	social	space.	This	provides	a	
rich	backdrop	to	the	summer	programs	and	the	anticipated	experiences.


B. SPonSorShIP oPPortunIty
Enriching	the	lives	of	its	children	is	one	of	the	most	enduring	values	a	community	can	
provide. When children’s lives are filled with opportunities for growth and development
the	results	can	be	stunningly	positive.		Children	are	inspired	to	take	action	that	brings	
a	positive	experience	for	themselves	and	others.		This	can	be	the	beginning	of	building	
the	world	citizenry	without	which	civilization	as	we	know	it	would	crumble,	and	
disappear.

Corporate	sponsorship	of	positive	social	activities	that	focuses	on	the	enrichment	of	kids	
provides	a	compelling	opportunity	to	promote	good	corporate	citizenship	throughout	
communities	around	the	globe.	The	goals	of	the	program	can	be	embraced	widely	
and	provide	an	opportunity	to	promote	corporate	image	and	garner	goodwill	
and	intangibles.	YKO	summer	program	will	gain	high	visibility	through	the	news	and	
broadcast	media	coverage	that	are	planned	as	part	of	the	program.

visibility	in	marketing	and	promotion	prior	to	the	event,	and	during	the	program	camp	
itself. This includes 12,000 to 16,000 posters, handbills, and fliers depending on the
market	that	will	be	distributed	in	the	weeks	before	the	event	throughout	the	Designated

key	roles	in	helping	sponsors	reach	the	target	DMA’s	throughout	the	summer	camp.	
It	is	expected	that	the	tour	will	reach	approximately	12	million	viewers	based	on	the	
aggressiveness	of	the	Internet	promotion	campaign.

Workshop 3: Nutrition and Health
general overvIeW:
The	teaching	of	fundamental	nutritional	knowledge	of	the	importance	of	proteins,	fats,	
carbohydrates,	minerals	and	vitamins	in	the	daily	diet
We	will	observe	the	hazards	of	a	high-sugar,	high-processed	diet.	
Students will learn about the basic flavors that our taste buds detect and how to use
those flavors to learn if a meal is well balanced. Basic shopping, set up, preparation,
recipe	reading,	cooking	and	clean	up	skills	will	be	taught	in	hands-on	cooking	class	
style	sessions.	
Each	session	will	end	with	fun	tasting	and	food	reviews	by	the	students.	The	end	of	the	
workshop	will	have	the	students	working	collectively	(in	groups/teams)	by	applying	
what	was	learned	to	create	and	prepare	a	recipe	for	an	easy	healthy	meal,	snack	and	
dessert.

goal/oBJectIve:
Students	will	learn	the	basic	nutritional	needs	and	how	to	prepare	a	meal,	snack,	and	
healthy	dessert.	By	giving	them	the	basic	nutritional	knowledge	and	cooking	skills	they	
will	then	be	able	to	use	their	own	creative	processes	while	utilizing	their	knowledge	to	
prepare	healthy	recipes	at	home	for	themselves,	their	family	and	friends.

Director	of	Operations-Native	Foods	Restaurant	Group

Native	Foods	Restaurant	Group	is	a	chain	of	healthy	vegetarian/vegan	restaurants	
in	Southern	California.	Pioneered	by	Chef	and	CEO	Tanya	Petrovna,	Native	Foods’	
guiding	core	values	are	to	provide	healthy	and	delicious	vegetarian	meals	for	
people,	and	by	virtue	of	those	food	choices	help	repair	the	natural	environment	while	
exemplifying	compassion	for	all	living	beings.

Lynda	found	these	core	values	true	to	her	own	and	had	chosen	to	devote	her	life	to	
this mission and Native Foods was a perfect fit. She had previously worked with Tanya in
the	early	pre-Native	Foods	years	in	Palm	Springs,	California,	cooking	healthy	meals	for	
private	clients	and	also	working	with	them	to	incorporate	better	eating	habits	into	their	
lifestyles.	Lynda	is	passionate	about	teaching	cooking	and	aside	from	teaching	her	own	
classes,	she	assists	Tanya	with	her	cooking	classes	regularly.

You will find Lynda engaging in daily “healthy” conversation while serving Native
Foods’ patrons and you will frequently find her speaking at public schools about the
importance of “greening” your diet. Lynda teaches nutrition and cooking in a fun and
hands	on	tasty	way.	Lynda’s	biggest	fan	is	her	youngest	daughter,	Jenna,	now	15,	who	
has	enjoyed	a	lifetime	of	healthy	vegetarian	eating.	Jenna	loves	to	bring	her	friends	
over to eat her mother’s cooking and “wow” them with the fact that healthy is great
tasting!

I	come	from	a	culturally	diverse	background.	Born	in	Peru,	and	raised	in	Mexico	
and	Unites	states	has	given	me	a	unique	understanding	of	culture	and	what	it	is	to	
build	community.	Being	bilingual	in	both	English,	Spanish	has	given	me	access	to	
communicate	with	a	larger	range	of	people.	

Throughout my life I have worked with various non-profits whose mission has been
focused	around	youth	and	social	justice	issues.	Since	I	was	sixteen	I	have	worked	and	
mentored	youth.	I	received	my	BA	in	Theatre	Arts	from	San	Francisco	State	University	
and have taught theatre to youth through a non-profit organization called The San
Francisco	Mime	Troupe.	I	have	also	worked,	volunteered	and	I	am	a	board	member	for	
a non-profit organization as a teacher/speaker/mentor called the National Foundation
for	Teaching	Entrepreneurship.	This	organization	teaches	inner-city	middle	school	and	
high	school	youth	the	skills	of	business.	I	have	given	workshops	and	taught	photography	
and	art	to	children	ages	5	through	7.	All	of	my	life’s	work	has	had	youth	as	the	main	
focus.	I	am	blessed	to	be	able	to	work	with	youth	and	I	am	grateful	that	as	I	work	with	
Yoga	Angels	I	will	have	even	more	to	offer	and	be	of	service	with.

technical	presentation	and	accompanying	rules.	The	next	road	on	his	journey,	led	him

foundation	of	print	production	with	more	education	and	practical	experience,	Ron	
advanced	in	Art	Direction,	print	design,	web	design,	web	development	and	multimedia
