New York, New York

The New York City Metroplex is a beautiful canvas of humanity. It's home to 20.5 Million people and you don’t have to go overseas to find a particular culture. NYC has 800 languages spoken and is the cultural, financial and media influence of the world. We believe if we can influence this city, we can change the world. Join Donny and Ashley Willis in New York City for AYC 2021 and together let’s influence the world and do something big for the Kingdom of God!

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.
