You Are Not Alone!

A safe space for LGBT youth and young adults

Our Mission

The mission of the Orlando Youth Alliance and its chapters is to provide a safe space for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth in Central Florida.

OYA meets on Tuesday evenings at 6:15 PM
The next meeting is on July 25, 2024


Sexuality and gender identity are important issues, but it can be really difficult for younger people in the LGBTQ community to find a safe place to discuss them.

OYA offers grants to support local GSAs.

Orlando Youth Alliance is a safe, supportive group where youth and young adults find positive role models, make new friends, discuss important topics with peers,  and become involved in the community.

Supporting OYA

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Orlando Youth Alliance is funded in part by the generous support of our sponsors and donors. You can make a tax-deductible donation of any amount or make a bequest.

Our organization also benefits from volunteers, who give of their time and energy to support our youth and young adults. We have volunteer opportunities for facilitators, fundraisers, chaperones, and more.


OYA relies on volunteers for a wide range of things, from facilitating groups to fundraising. Please join us in our efforts to help youth and young adults in Central Florida find a safe supportive space where they can truly be themselves.
