Improve Your Tomorrow, Inc (IYT) was founded in April 2013 by Michael Lynch and Michael Casper. Inspired by their own experiences while attending Valley High School in South Sacramento, Michael and Casper returned to their community to give back. Since 2013, IYT has grown from 17 students at Valley High School to 1,500 students across 19 local middle and high schools, and college students across the nation.
IYT Virtual was born in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which disproportionately affects students and families in the communities IYT serves. IYT Virtual aims to provide students with same core services traditionally offered to IYT students at a participating site through virtual platforms.
