Where & What

Where & What We Do

IYI transforms the world in which youth live and does this through a strategic response to a real need within the global youth population ages 12-24.

Currently, IYI works ongoingly in three countries internationally: Haiti, Dominican Republic, and Mexico.  Why three countries? Because it’s about deep, long-lasting transformation and development of leaders.  This takes time and resources.  While a plethora of opportunities exist for expansion and activities, IYI is slow and intentional in those that it chooses to invest in.   In the end, this makes for the greatest and deepest results long-term per dollar and the greatest long-term impact in the lives of people.
