The Main Line Youth Alliance depends on donations to stay open. Visit our Volunteer page to learn more about how donations are used, and how you can help MYA.



The Main Line Youth Alliance (MYA) provides gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender questioning youth and straight allies, with social educational and supportive activities in a confidential, respectful and safe environment. MYA programs, unique in the Philadelphia's western suburbs, encourages healthy relationships with peers, family and community.

MYA opened it's doors to youth in 1998, by two local educators, Janice Pinto and Linda Ardao. Both teachers at area high school, they worked with those in the community to being a group specific to glbtq youth and their allies. Youth are welcome between 14-22 years of age.

MYA is thrilled and honored to have received the generous donation of Main Line Unitarian Church, whose congregation shared it's June offering with MYA! MLUC is passionate about social

justice and is welcoming to ALL in the community. Rev. Craig and members of MLUC came to MYA to present the check, and share MLUC's story with our youth.

MANY MANY thanks to all at MLUC for this gift!

 

 

MYA had an enthusiastic audience for our Christine Havrilla concert on July 21st. We are grateful to Christine, Wendy, Gretchen and judy for sharing their amazing

music with and for our organization!

 

 

MYA has had some great panels recently - Sarah led a series on transgender issues, which was a big hit with our youth. They especially enjoyed the panel of trans folks of various ages who shared their personal journeys.  Thanks to all who participated!!

Doctors Robb and Bob joined our youth for a discussion on "drugs, sex, and rock 'n roll".They answered lots of questions for the youth, questions that don't get answered in schools, where frequently glbtq issues are missing. Also parents of Wayne, the docs shared their experiences on adoption, parenting and more.Our youth had lots of great questions and can't wait for the docs to return!
Thanks guys!!!!
