“In spite of the great increase in the size and the span of this Fellowship, at its core it remains simple and personal. Each day, somewhere in the world, recovery begins when one alcoholic talks with another alcoholic, sharing experience, strength, and hope.”
YPAA comes from Young People in Alcoholics Anonymous. By this we mean someone who has become an alcoholic or someone who has gotten sober at an early age, or an alcoholic who is young at heart. We think that any members of AA, who are willing to grow in their sobriety, are young alcoholics.
If for some reason, you are wondering whether YPAA-groups are a legimate part of AA, you can find an answer here.
