About Us

Since 1994, it has been a dream vision to provide awareness and alternative options to fight Childhood Obesity. With millions of children affected by this epidemic. AYAO will create activities and events that can/will directly improve the health and well being of children.

AYAO's goal is to motivate our youth and ignite a universal drive to healthier and more active lifestyles. We will accomplish this goal through school appearances, city and county youth expos, and other events that are geared towards youth. We will perform interactive activities demonstrating the affects of healthy and unhealthy choices.

Our youth needs positive influences and examples to help guide them to the healthier choices. They?ve developed and embraced negative, unhealthy, and destructive habits which are glamorized in the media. Furthermore, our youth are tempted daily through television advertisements. These habits are even more destructive when coupled with the Internet social networking, cell phone texting, and video game play which all are promoted directly at the youth.

Only through personal relationships can a sense of individual responsibility be reestablished that will give youth the commitment to follow through on path to adulthood with a sense of pride and accomplishment.
AYAO is a program that is in direct response to the growing number of our young people that are affected by obesity. The focus is slightly different at each level but the goal remains the same; inspire our youth to make healthy choices in their daily activities.
