The Greek Orthodox Youth of America (GOYA) of the Assumption Greek Orthodox Church is an extension of the community’s Sunday school program and provides the church's youth opportunities to volunteer, engage in enterprising activities, make lifelong friendships and express their Faith. With guidance from the GOYA advisor and faithful parents, GOYA officers learn to express their faith through a variety of “hands on” activities, including activity planning, group leadership, and financial planning.

Children ages 12 – 18 are members of GOYA.



Annual Activities

Thanks to the support from our parents, priests and community, the GOYA has been able to participate in the following activities:


First Sunday of every month the GOYA holds a full-member meeting to discuss recently completed activities and discuss plans for upcoming events and activities.

Annual Trip
