Brief History

In 1949, young Ukrainian immigrants, many of whom participated in the armed struggle for Ukraine's freedom, founded the Ukrainian Youth Association (UAYA) in America, on the patriotic principles of the original organization that was destroyed by Stalin's regime in Ukraine in 1930. It was in Philadelphia that the first UAYA Branch in America was created in 1949; appropriately, it adapted for itself the name "UPA," in honor of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army that fought against all enemies of Ukraine during and after World War II. The UAYA's slogan, "God and Ukraine," has become the guiding principle for three generations of Ukrainian American youth.
