TYRO Dads teaches men what it means to be responsible fathers, effectively creating men worth following.
TYRO, the company's flagship suite of programs, was created and is based on the Tijerina family's personal experience with welfare and incarceration. It is comprised of three components: TYRO Dads, Couple Communication®, and TYRO Job Ethics Training (JET).
TYRO is a holistic, multi-faceted character-building program, designed to strengthen individuals and families. The word TYRO is Latin, meaning novice, apprentice, or someone learning something new. It teaches participants how to overcome destructive generational cycles of poverty, incarceration, and dependency.
TYRO Dads is designed to combat the root issues inherent in destructive or self-serving behavior patterns, through cognitive restructuring and positive role-modeling. In this course, individuals are taught and encouraged to begin taking responsibility for their actions and to act with honor and integrity. Additionally, the TYRO Dads coursework provides people with a healthy model for becoming a responsible citizen and family member. Those who successfully complete the TYRO Dads course earn the title of "TYRO," as they now stand as warriors for themselves and their families.
