I'm curious as to what Orthodox Churches do to reach their youth? Do they have youth ministers or ministries directed toward that age group?

in Christ,

I know the Greeks have GOYA for kids/teens at many of their parishes. The parish down the street from us also participates in a regional basketball league for Orthodox parishes. The Greeks and Antiochians also have summer camps.
