We Are TYRO


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.
