prides itself in assisting law enforcement agencies and parents in the location of missing children.
Approximately 750,000 children are reported missing each year according to the U. S. Dept. of Justice.

because it is a collaborative effort between your police departments, schools, parents, and community
leaders. D.A.R.E. provides all their services free of charge due to the generous support of the public. Drug
Abuse Resistance Education was founded in 1983 in Los Angeles and has proven so successful that it is
now being implemented in nearly 80 percent of our nation’s school districts and in more than 54 countries
around the world.

seminars, and books. United Care USA’s goal is to educate the public of the long-term societal ills that
child abuse creates so we can work together to eliminate the sad reality of it all.

         Toys for Tots, a U.S. Marine Corps program that was created in 1947, has distributed over 144
million toys to over 151 million needy children. Toy for Tots is one of the most visible Christmas
charitable causes with local Toys for Tots campaigns conducted from October through December each year
in over 450 communities throughout the nation.

provide these organizations with the funds they need to carry out their charitable purpose of promoting
child safety and awareness, as well as educating on the dangers of drugs and violence.

         Our goal is to involve you in our dynamic expansion program. To help make all this possible, we

Harassment Will not be Tolerated

        Prodigy Conceptz, Inc. is committed to providing a work place free of sexual
harassment (which includes harassment based on gender, pregnancy, childbirth, or related
medical conditions), as well as harassment based on such factors as race, color, religion,
national origin, ancestry, age, physical disability, mental disability, medical condition,
marital status, sexual orientation, or veteran status. This policy applies to all persons
associated with the Company, including its employees, managers, and customers. The
Company strongly disapproves of and will not tolerate harassment of employees,
customers or managers.

What is Harassment Under State and Federal Law?


        Harassment includes verbal, physical, and visual conduct that creates an
intimidating, offensive or hostile working environment or that interferes with work
performance. Such conduct constitutes harassment when: (1) submission to the conduct
is made either an explicit or implicit condition of employment; (2) submission to or
rejection of the conduct is used as the basis for an employment decision; or (3) the
harassment interferes with an employee’s work performance or creates an intimidating,
hostile or offensive work environment.

        Harassing conduct can take many forms and includes, but is not limited to: slurs,
jokes, statements, gestures, pictures or cartoons regarding an employee’s sex, race, color,
national origin, religion, age, physical disability, mental disability, medical condition,
ancestry, marital status, sexual orientation, family care leave status or veteran status.

        Sexually harassing conduct in particular includes all of these prohibited actions as
well as other unwelcome conduct such as request for sexual favors, conversation
containing sexual comments, and unwelcome sexual advances.

Internal Company Complaint Process


       Any incident of harassment, including work-related harassment by any employee,
manager, customer, or any other person, should be reported promptly to a manager or the
Company’s President, Lester Smith. Managers who receive complaints or who observe
harassing conduct should inform the Company’s President immediately. The Company
emphasizes that there is no requirement to complain first to a manager if that manager is
the individual who is committing the harassment or the complainant feels uncomfortable
discussing the matter with the manager or the manager is not available.

        Every reported complaint of harassment will be investigated thoroughly, promptly
and in a confidential manner. In addition, the Company will not tolerate retaliation
against any employee for cooperating in an investigation or for making a complaint to the
manager or the President.

        In the case of Company employees, if harassment is established, the Company
will discipline the offender. Disciplinary action for a violation of this policy can range
from verbal or written warnings up to and including immediate termination, depending
upon the circumstances.

Protection Against Retaliation


        Sexual harassment and retaliation for opposing sexual harassment or participating
in investigations of sexual harassment are illegal. Immediately report to the company any
harassment or retaliation complaints.

Harassers Are Personally Liable


        If you, as an employee or manager are found to have engaged in sexual
harassment, or if you as a manager know about conduct and condone or ratify it, you may
be personally liable for monetary damages. The company will not pay damages assessed
against you personally.

       In addition, the Company will take appropriate disciplinary measures which may
include termination of your employment.



                              Acknowledgement of Receipt


I, ____________________________________, acknowledge receipt of the Company’s
Policy Against Harassment. I promise to abide by the Company’s policy and agree to
promptly notify the company if I believe the policy has been violated.

                                      ACKNOWLEDGMENT

         I understand that by signing the Employment at Will Agreement, I will be working as a
distributor for Prodigy Conceptz, Inc., a for-profit corporation that sells general merchandise (e.g.
books, toys) to the public. I also understand that the company contributes 20% of the proceeds
from the sales of selected merchandise to the non-profit D.A.R.E. America, Inc. I agree to review
the following Code of Ethics and to comply with its requirements.


                                          Code of Ethics

               Distributors will provide all potential customers with contact information for
                D.A.R.E. America, Inc. (“Licensor”), as well as printed materials, and will answer
                all questions honestly and to the best of their ability or refer the customer to
                someone who can provide the information requested.

               Distributors will politely ask potential customers to purchase a product and tell
                them that 20% of what they pay, for selected products, will be given to DA.R.E.
                America. Regardless of whether or not they purchase anything, members of the
                community will be thanked and wished a very good day.

               Distributors will dress and conduct themselves in a professional manner. They will
                ensure that their photo identification badge is prominently displayed for a potential
                customer to see.

               Distributors CANNOT solicit, accept or collect donations from anyone. If the
                customer wishes to make a donation, it will be suggested that they contact the
                charity directly to make the donation.

               Distributors, if requested by a customer, will honestly, accurately, and without any
                misrepresentation or material omissions, answer all questions or refer customer to
                appropriate sources.

        The Following statements are samples of Accurate Statements you can make:
       “Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E. America) will receive 20% of the
        suggested retail price from the sale of each approved D.A.R.E. product.”
       “D.A.R.E. was founded in 1983 in Los Angeles and has proven so successful that
        it is now being implemented in nearly 80 percent of our nation’s school districts
        and in more than 54 countries around the world.”
       “D.A.R.E. is a police officer-led series of classroom lessons that teaches children
        from kindergarten through 12th grade how to resist peer pressure and live
        productive drug and violence- free lives.”
        “Part of the reason D.A.R.E. works so well is because it is a collaborative effort
        between your police department, your school, parents, and community leaders.
        D.A.R.E. works because it surrounds children with support and encouragement
        from all sides.”
    
       “D.A.R.E. has launched a new elementary and a new middle school curriculum
        this year. The new D.A.R.E. program teaches kids how to recognize and resist
        the direct and subtle pressures that influence them to experiment with alcohol,
        tobacco, marijuana, and other drugs. And since between 70% and 90% of all
        crime is drug related, it is absolutely vital that we reach the children of America
        before it is too late.”
    “A certified law enforcement officer comes into your school and teaches the
    children.”


        I acknowledge that all products used by me, bearing the trademarks
        of D.A.R.E. America, will be purchased through the authorized
        vendors. I further acknowledge that I will seek the prior written
        approval of D.A.R.E. America in requesting any customized artwork
        utilizing the D.A.R.E. America trademarks.

        I also acknowledge that I have read and understand that only
        authorized licenses of D.A.R.E. America may use the family of
        D.A.R.E. trademarks on merchandise and in publications. I further
        acknowledge that any continued, unauthorized use of D.A.R.E.’s
        trademarks by me will constitute willful counterfeit infringement and
        D.A.R.E. America will take the appropriate legal action to stop the
        misuse of its trademarks.



If a distributor misrepresents himself, herself, or the company either deliberately or unintentionally,
their eligibility to use the name of DA.R.E. America in conducting sales, or to claim to represent it in
any way, will be terminated immediately. Anyone who behaves in a fraudulent manner will also be
subject to investigation and punishment by the Authorities.

I have received, read, and understand D.A.R.E. America’s policy as listed on these pages.
