Where it all began...




Iron Range Youth in Action was established in 1996 by St. Louis County Commissioner Liz Prebich and the PARTNERS board.



Liz envisioned youth across Northeastern St. Louis County active in their communities, using their voices in public policy and civic engagement on a very large scale.


Their Vision


Supported by St. Louis County Commissioners Mike Forsman and Steve Raukar, Liz Prebich worked with the PARTNERS board - representatives of numerous schools and cities -  to create a youth organization that would reach out to Iron Range students, schools, and communities.

A youth service organization making a difference in communities and lives!
