We would like to introduce Daria. Daria is a foreign exchange student from Kyiv (Kiev) Ukraine and Youth in Action member. YIA’s biggest upcoming community event is being spearheaded by Daria. She is planning a benefit concert for families who have been misplaced and/or negatively impacted by the war. The concert will be on February 10 in the Marshall school auditorium and will feature local school bands and choirs. Marshall band and choir will perform, and Daria has reached out to East, Hermantown, and Proctor YIA groups to invite them to participate. YIA invites all local schools that would like to take part in this great event! Daria is also working on putting together a silent auction as another way to raise money for the families on the night of the concert. YIA students are just starting to work on a plan to reach out to local businesses for donations. If you would like to make a donation, please contact Tyler Erickson or the YIA office at yiamn.org or 218-733-2870. Pictured is Daria presenting the benefit concert to Hermantown yesterday morning.

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.
