Based on the Tijerina family’s personal experience with welfare and incarceration, TYRO is comprised of several components: TYRO Dads, TYRO ROP, Leadership, 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. We are translating TYRO into Spanish so be sure to stay connected for updates.
