Youth SAGA


Peer-based Support Group for LGBTQ+ Youth

Youth SAGA is a peer-based support group committed to empowering, educating, and advocating for LGBTQ+ youth in the Roanoke Valley and beyond!


Youth SAGA was founded in 2010 after assessing a need in the Roanoke community for a peer-based support group for LGBTQ+ youth. The group was initially named Roanoke DESTINY (Diversity, Education and Support to INspire Youth) and later re-named Youth SAGA (Sexuality and Gender Alliance) by the young folx attending. Youth SAGA has always been a peer-led group with supportive adult volunteers who facilitate the meetings. All SAGA volunteers undergo a background check, a screening and interview process, and receive training to facilitate meetings. Youth SAGA supports and extends the mission of Diversity Camp Inc by providing an opportunity for year-round support and community for LGBTQ+ youth in the region.

If you'd like to support the mission and outreach of Youth SAGA, please consider making a donation via the Diversity Camp Inc website and note "Youth SAGA" in the designation.
