In September of 1991, I was twenty-four years old when I found myself trying to explain to my two and four year old sons why Daddy didn’t come home that day.
TYRO was created out of Ron and Cathy Tijerina’s journey to overcome seemingly impossible odds. It is comprised of three components: TYRO Dads, Couple Communication, and TYRO JET. The courses are designed to equip individuals with the life skills they need to be responsible parents and partners, better communicators, reliable employees, and positive role models.
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 that oftentimes tear families apart and keep individuals stuck in patterns of defeat.
The TYRO Suite utilizes a transformative new mobile digital engagement tool, TYRO 365 (365). 365 is an interactive digital space that integrates curriculum training, program analytics, social networking, peer accountability and client-tailored content. This revolutionary platform is changing the ways we view, track, and interact with our clients, and will be a catalyst for the social change that our TYRO curriculum is currently driving. Communication and information sharing has now become an instantaneous process that allows people to stay connected and engaged in ways not possible a decade ago. From this platform, we are able to fill the gap that occurs between face to-face classes.Learn More
TYRO® Leadership is a nationally known, award-winning, best practice curriculum designed to equip participants with the skills necessary to achieve their highest potential. This intensive character development program teaches participants to own responsibility for their actions, and prepares them to live a life of honor and integrity. Upon successful completion, participants have a significant increase in emotional intelligence and reported a marked improvement in how they view themselves and their relationships.
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. TYRO Dads teaches men what it means to be responsible fathers, effectively creating men worth following.

TYRO Job Ethics Training (JET) teaches TYROs how to be successful at work, and provides crossover skills designed to make them valuable employees. The overall theme of the course is to help participants recognize moral right and wrong in the context of everyday living. Each lesson in this course is balanced between short descriptions of the ideas being presented followed by exercises that viscerally demonstrate the concepts through physical and mental exercises.Learn More
