Syriac Orthodox Archdiocesan Youth Organization

SOAYO is the overarching youth group of the eastern United States for the Syriac Orthodox Archdiocese. Their main goal is to support and strengthen the youth groups of each Parish in our community. SOAYO does not take over youth activities – all events are hosted by individual youth groups.

SOAYO Big Brother Big Sister!

SOAYO is pleased to announce a Big Brother Big Sister (BBBS) program that will initially be taking place in New Jersey.

If you would like to sign up as a ‘little’ or as a mentor, please fill out the respective applications and submit them to your Church Youth President. If you have any questions you can contact your Youth President or send an email to:
