Mission Statement

To provide a safe space for LGBTQ youth in Central Florida

Description

The Orlando Youth Alliance has offered a weekly peer-to-peer support group
for LGBTQ youth in Central Florida since 1990. Today, three weekly groups
are offered: Orlando, Lakeland and Longwood. Monthly social, educational
and recreational activities occur to further help our youth to develop a core
group of friends and peer supporters. In addition to the support group and
activities, OYA provides LGBT History & Culture classes, scholarships, mental
health referrals and career exploration. Numerous professionals have spoken
to our youth about their careers and the options that await them. Developing
this nucleus of friends is the key to never feeling alone. Since LGTBQ
youth are five times more likely to commit suicide than their heterosexual
classmates, it is vital that we provide the services of OYA to our area youth.
The impact of OYA: Over the past 31 years we have helped 2,100
youth. Two of those youths now serve on the board of directors
