The Greek Orthodox Youth of America (GOYA) is the ministry for junior high and high school Orthodox Christian teenagers. Our efforts lead our young people to experience the Orthodox Faith and to develop a personal relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. GOYA also provides a valuable opportunity to develop long-lasting friendships through our faith and culture.
Some of our activities include making blankets for Sarah's Hope, painting Believe mugs for cancer patients, singing Christmas carols at assisted living facilities, and answering phones during the Radiothon for the Johns Hopkins Children's Center.
Our GOYA typically hosts a Basketball Tournament weekend where we welcome over 400 GOYA players, coaches, priests, parents, families, and friends. Each year we donate some of the proceeds to charities and orphanages.
