Biographical Info:

Administrative History

The Mutual Improvement Associations were organized for the youth of the LDS church.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was organized in 1830 in New York state. The Saints eventually gathered in Utah, headquartered in Salt Lake City. The youth programs of the church started with the Young Gentlemen’s and Young Ladies’ Relief Society in 1843. In 1875 church President Brigham Young organized the Young Men’s Mutual Improvement Association (YMMIA) as a counterpart to the Young Ladies' National Mutual Improvement Association (YLNMIA). For most of the 20th century, the youth organizations of the LDS church were known simply as MIA.
