Hello, I am Bryan Sierra, and I joined AYC this year to make a difference. To make people see the world differently rather than seeing this world as a dangerous place filled with horrible people. Why did I want to do this? I did this because I've talked to many people and many teenagers who have told me that this world, and specifically Andover, needs to change the way everyone sees each other and how they see the world.
Hi, my name is Sam Grant! I'm a junior at Andover High and a new member on the Andover Youth Council.

I am a sophomore at AHS. I joined AYC my freshman year. I originally applied to AYC not knowing much about it, and I just wanted to try something different. Little did I know that I would have some amazing experiences, make some of my closest friends, gain a new nickname (Sav Daddy) and find a voice in my community I never knew I was missing. AYC has added to my high school experience immensely and I can't imagine what I would be doing without it.

My name is Philip LeBlanc IV. I am a sophomore at St. Johns Prep. AYC is a very good opportunity to give back to Andover and to empower young people.
