Who We Are

Established in 2013, TWIYO dismantles systems of disadvantage facing inner-city youth through exposure, experience, service and travel. We believe that exposure, experience, and travel change lives by creating essential bridges between the world youth presently know and the world at large. Our Programs promote youth's awareness of, and participation in global perspectives while cementing their valuable place within the world they will inherit as adults.
