Young People in Service Committee

Our Purpose

The Area 46 Young People in A.A. standing committee encourages young people to enter into the mainstream of A.A. Recovery, Service, and Unity through the 12 Steps, the 12 Traditions and the 12 Concepts for World Service.

What We Do

Carry A.A.’s message to the alcoholic who still suffers. We do this by uniting young people in the New Mexico area and beyond, and providing a forum for young people to become involved in A.A. service work. The Area 46 Young People in Service Committee provides an opportunity for young A.A..s to come together and share their experience, strength, and hope as members of Alcoholics Anonymous.

Young People groups are in no way separate from Alcoholics Anonymous as a whole. Members are involved in, and committed to all levels of A.A. service. Age is not a requirement for a young people’s group. Young People groups and activities directed towards young people in A.A. are helpful tools in reaching young alcoholics who might otherwise not give A.A. a try for many more years, if at all.

Get Involved (A.A.Members)

Any member of Alcoholics Anonymous within Area 46 can get involved in our committee. If you would like more information about getting involved start here.

Our message is simple yet important -- the only requirement for AA membership is a desire to stop drinking and regardless of age, there is a solution.
