The Greek Orthodox Youth of America (GOYA) is the ministry of 7th to 12th grade age range of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America.
GOYA is a ministry of the Church. It is not an organization or club, it is simply the faithful of the Church who share the same grades, ages and common interests. It is a spiritual ministry, based on the theological tenets of the Orthodox Christian Faith.
The mission and goal of GOYA 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.
