DONATE | EDUCATE | PARTICIPATE
IYRS THINKS DIFFERENTLY about transforming lives through education. We prepare people who want to work through their hands or through technology for life-long careers. We are helping change education in America by providing an alternative path to four-year and community college experiences.
