The Greek Orthodox Youth of America, or GOYA, is the ministry to teenagers of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. Since GOYA is ministry, the orientation and implementation of the program reflects the Orthodox Christian Faith, Tradition and Life.

GOYA is ministry to middle and high school grade Orthodox Christian teenagers from 7th to 12th Grade. The mission and goal of GOYA ministry is to lead our young people into experiencing the Holy Orthodox Faith. By developing a personal relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and becoming active sacramental members of the living Church, our young people will be equipped with tools necessary to assist them in their journey toward salvation. We participate in a variety of events that are spiritual, service oriented, or social to build both faith and community.

Highlights of Programs throughout the year include: Basketball Tournaments, Volleyball Tournaments, helping to host the St. Nicholas Bazaar, Holiday Parties, and Leadership Opportunities
