Larry Zeilstra began his 20-year career with Integral Youth Services as a project finder for both the Teamwork program, the Summer Work program, and was responsible for writing grants for both. Since that time he has moved on to the position of agency Grant Writer and Special Project Director, then to Finance Director and currently serves as our Assistant Director. Before coming to IYS, Larry was an entrepreneur, owning and starting several businesses, which prepared him for the multifaceted role he has at IYS. Larry wears many hats at IYS. His day may start with financial questions and end with mopping the floor or helping to pull a broken engine and installing a new one in one the IYS vehicles. Larry says that “working for a non-profit means never completely knowing what you will be doing on any given day, but that is what makes it fun.” During his off time Larry likes working in his shop, traveling, camping and fishing with his wife of 39 years, and traveling to visit his grandchildren and their parents.
