The Greek Orthodox Youth of America (GOYA) is an organization devoted to expanding the horizons of our youth in our Orthodox Faith and our Hellenic heritage. Although the organization is primarily devoted to education, it also fosters social interaction between Greek Orthodox youth throughout New Jersey and promotes leadership within the Greek Orthodox community. Meetings are usually held on the 4th Thursday of each month.
The goal is to allow a GOYAN to:
1) Expand the horizons of his/her Orthodox Faith and Hellenic heritage,
2) Foster greater unity among youth,
3) Promote leadership opportunities,
4) Experience safe and stable environment,
5) Promote team building and cooperation,
6) Enjoy peer/mentoring and fun
