As one of the largest employers in the region, we recognize the need to reach our future employees - while they are still in middle and high schools. Iron Lives, Inc. operates in the school systems, thereby putting them in a unique position to reach students. Workshops on interviewing, dressing for the interview, and eating etiquette provide a unique skillset that will be important to them as they enter the work world.

I love what this nonprofit stands for and how committed they are to excellence in all areas possible. So many kids have already been influenced by IRON Lives and I can’t wait to see just how much more influence they’ll have over the central Virginia area.

I was introduced to IRON 2 years ago. Once I heard the testimonies of alumni that have passed through the program I knew I had to participate and be involved. I couldn't have been proud if they were my own kids. Great program, changing lives.

The staff at IRON have such an obvious passion for the youth in this community. They continually go above and beyond to make sure every child is seen and is given the tools to reach their fullest potential. I absolutely would recommend this program to anyone who is interested in getting involved!

Iron Lives has impacted my life in various ways! Here is exactly how- when I was a high school student I had no idea that the positive youth development skills that they were teaching me would be tools that I would use in the future. I love that this organization is "full circle." I am currently the Special Initiatives Supervisor for the program that impacted my life so greatly as a student. Now 11 years later, I am able to give back to the organization that had such an impact on me!

Today's students face negative pressures. As a result, they risk making life-altering decisions that leave a devastating impact on their future. For more than a decade, IRON Lives has been breaking the cycle of negativity through proven research-based programs that take students from striving to thriving.
