Nevada Area Conference of Young People in AA – Facts, Aim, and Purpose

NACYPAA was presented to NV Area 42 in the Fall of 2018 by a collective of YPAA members from around the area. Existing YPAA committees had been approached over the years by outlying, smaller communities about starting YPAA meetings and/or committees. A need had been established by a few, and Area 42 agreed – young people in the area, specifically rural communities, are reaching out for help – and we want the hand of AA always to be there, and for that, NACYPAA is responsible.

This need will be filled by creating an opportunity for more Young People’s groups and committees to be formed through the process of bidding for, hosting, serving, and attending this conference – more young people in the area will hear the message that you CAN achieve a lasting and comfortable sobriety, at ANY age.

Young People’s Groups in Alcoholics Anonymous have existed since the earliest days of our fellowship and Young People’s conferences started in 1958, and now NACYPAA has joined in the responsibility of reaching out the hand of AA. The 12 Steps, 12 Traditions, and 12 Concepts for world service are the cornerstone of the fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous as a whole, and therefore the keystone for NACYPAA.
