2020-2021 Advisors: Yanni & Zoe Lazarou
Ephesians 4:2: Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.
The Greek Orthodox Youth of America (G.O.Y.A.) is for ages 12 - 17 and the Junior Orthodox Youth (J.O.Y) is for ages 9 - 11. The mission of G.O.Y.A. and J.O.Y is to lead our young people into experiencing and acquiring an understanding of the Orthodox Faith which helps strengthen their dedication to the church.
Our goal is to take what the children learn in Sunday School and put it into practice. This is accomplished by applying the lessons of Sunday School into activities such as helping to feed the poor and homeless and by visiting nursing homes.
Along with these experiences, the group is slated to go on trips to Pennsylvania and the Baltimore/Washington D.C. region.

Due to the pandemic we were unable to hold a festival in 2020. Now that restrictions have been lifted statewide, especially for Prince George's County, we want to hold our festival in September to bring back all the delicious food in a safe environment - as always!
