Iron Range Youth in Action collaborates with the American Lung Association. Since a majority of tobacco users start before the age of 18, high school students are an appropriate age group to become educated on the topic. IRYA is involved with the American Lung Association for their lobby day at the Capitol, their booth at the St. Louis County Fair and the annual Kick Butts Day. Students see tobacco use daily and want to make a change to their community at the local and state levels involving tobacco. Working with the American Lung Association gives them that platform to make a difference.
