We will be cleaning parks in Downtown Brooklyn and help with fixing up a park.


AYC helped me put aside a shell of timidness and gave me confidence to show a boldness to be a witness to the world. I gained experience working in a different missionary environment  I will never forget my first AYC trip. It will live on in my memory for the rest of my life.
