MYA provides a safe and healthy environment for their glbtq youth. MYA meets each Friday evening from 7-9:30 pm. There is no charge for admission and like any group, where teens gather, snacks are served! From time to time, we welcome parents to join in for an activity of fundraising or discussion – and those will be posted on our calendar in advance.
Who We Are
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. Both taught at area high schools, working with those in the community to start a group specific to LGBTQ youth and their allies. The average age range on most Friday nights, is between 14-19.
2018 will be 20 years since MYA began!
