The first breakout presentation that we are excited to spotlight for this year's upcoming Make a Difference Conference is: Building Bridges & Creating Boundaries: Learning how to identify, set, and communicate healthy, personal boundaries to create positive relationships. This presentation will be led by: Shay Busch, Emma Elias, Jordan Lommel, and Cassie Dahl from Mountain Iron-Buhl High School. They will discuss ways to recognize cues, in order to respect the limits and comforts others set for themselves.

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.
