A non-profit 501 (c)3 organization, the Youth Pride Alliance (YPA) was founded in 1996. Its mission is to empower Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, and Ally youth, encouraging positive self-development and expression, as well as leadership, while bridging diverse communities and individuals to address issues of visibility, equality, and social justice. YPA hosts programs like Youth Pride Day, provides leadership training, and facilitates intergenerational partnerships, and is dedicated to advancing a holistic agenda that addresses the cultural, educational, political and social needs of young people in the D.C. area. As a small, all-volunteer run organization, YPA relies on the support of the community to succeed.
