The Greek Orthodox Youth Association (GOYA)
This youth group is to provide an environment where teenagers of St. George can experience, live, and learn their Orthodox Faith and Culture so that, as they grow and mature, both spiritually and physically, they will develop a commitment to God, the Greek Orthodox Faith and the Greek Orthodox Church.
We are proud of our GOYA because it is a place where young people come to learn and grow as Greek Orthodox Christians. We have also experienced that many people make new friends and experience their Faith and culture in a loving environment.
Presently our GOYA consists of members who are 12 to 18 years old and in the 7th to 12th grades. We have monthly meetings and our yearly calendar is full of activities including religious, Hellenic, charitable, athletic, and social events, which are at the local, district, and Northern New Jersey level. Due to the challenging circumstances this year, our youth calendar will be adjusted.
Any Greek Orthodox teenager that meets the age and grade requirements is welcome to join. After filling out the necessary registration forms and submitting a copy of their birth certificate, they can then participate in all the GOYA events.
About the St. George GOYA

The youth group really makes teens and parents feel like they are a part of the St. George Community.
