The Greek Orthodox Youth of America, or GOYA, is the ministry for teenagers in our community from grades six through twelve. The mission and goal of GOYA is to lead our young people in the path of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ experiencing the Orthodox Faith.

In developing a personal relationship with God, becoming active sacramental members of the Church, our young people will grow through God’s grace in the areas of worship, fellowship, witness and service. The various activities throughout the year reinforce this mission and goal giving youth the tools necessary to help them on their journey toward salvation.

Such activities for GOYA include: Basketball League, Paraklesis Services with once a month group dinner, food, clothing, and toy drives throughout the year, helping the homeless, dances, Orthodox Life, social outings, family nights, and much more!
