On April 26th, Mesabi East hosted one of our favorite events, Cardboard Box City! Kids from a variety of schools built box houses, to raise awareness for homelessness. Hannah Barnes, Case Manager from the Virginia Youth Foyer, educated us on what resources are brought to the community by AEOA & the Foyer. A hygiene drive was held in conjunction with box city. All supplies will benefit AEOA shelters. Mesabi East was the winner of our first annual traveling trophy. A huge thank you to our 20 awesome participants & our friends at AEOA!

Yesterday, Mountain Iron-Buhl YIA had an afternoon of activities and a BBQ lunch at Carefree Assisted Living in Buhl. It was our first time back since Covid. We painted cans and boxes that will be used to plant flowers and hope to return to visit again soon! Thanks to Activities Director, Satori Hanson for the nice setup.

What is YIA?

Youth in Action (or YIA) is a St. Louis County program that promotes students getting involved in school and community projects that make a positive impact.    

Youth in Action  opportunities are available on the Iron Range for students in grades 7-12 and in the Duluth area schools for students in grades 9-12. It is free to join and everybody is welcome! 


Our MISSION is to maintain and support youth development and community programs and projects. We work to promote public service values to better engage young adults with their  communities. Our goal is to bring positive change to St. Louis County through partnerships with students, schools, community organizations and businesses and our in-school advisors.
