GOYA is a group comprised of 13-18 year old children. They participate in many fund raisers and charitable events, such as Project Mexico (an organization that flies Youth Groups to Mexico to help build homes for poor families), Habitat for Humanity, Midnight Run, Long Island Cares and many more worthy causes.
GOYA also serves as a social setting where these teens can share their heritage, faith, language and traditions within their church. These are done in the capacity of our own community, as well as those surrounding Orthodox communities through the Inter-GOYA.
For the sports enthusiasts, they can join one of our many sports programs, which include Soccer, Basketball and Volleyball as well as the Junior Olympics.
