Service Page

Service to alcoholics and to AA is a vital part of what keeps us sober. We make new friendships with sober members‚ learn from them‚ and enjoy a new dimension of fellowship. And after being of service for a while‚ we no longer want to be anywhere else!

In addition to the service positions available in meetings‚ working with others can take many forms. Here are the service groups in Napa County in which you can get involved.

Bridging the Gap – Under review

Statement of Purpose
Bridging the Gap is a General Service sub-committee that supports that very important first step for alcoholics who have just been released from a hospital‚ treatment center or correctional facility. By providing a temporary contact‚ Bridging the Gap helps newcomers make the transition to Alcoholics Anonymous in his or her home community.

Members of Alcoholics Anonymous‚ usually in pairs‚ meet the patients or inmates after release and accompany them to their first A.A. meeting. As in all 12-step work‚ this activity is strictly voluntary.

How do I get involved? 
Bridging the Gap is currently in need of a Chairperson for this committee. Use the contact information listed below if you are interested in getting involved.

Where do you meet? ?????

What positions are available?
We’re always looking for volunteers to fill our phone list. When someone requests our service‚ we provide them with a volunteer to take them to their first A.A. meeting. We try to have a volunteer available who is someone around their age and gender‚ who lives in their neighborhood‚ who can take them to the volunteer’s home group‚ introduce them to the fellowship and make them feel welcome and at home. It is usually a one-time commitment‚ and as in all 12-step work‚ should be done in pairs. To be a volunteer‚ it is suggested that you have at least 6 months sobriety and a working knowledge of the twelve steps.

There are also service positions available on the committee. These service positions include chair and alternate chair positions‚ recording secretary‚ phone coordinators‚ Intergroup liaison‚ H & I liaison and presentation teams.

NAPYPAA  Under Review:

NAPYPAA (Napa Young People in Alcoholics Anonymous)

Statement of Purpose

In February of 2016 Napa Young People in Alcoholics Anonymous (NAPYPAA) was re-established to carry the message of Alcoholics Anonymous to the alcoholic who is still suffering. We are a service committee who serves the young and young at heart. The disease of alcoholism and addiction has no age requirement or limit, nor do we. Our purpose is to welcome new comers and involve them in something greater than themselves. We host AA meetings and events to show the fun isn’t over once you get sober. We are also here to support the Napa fellowship and other YPAA’s, which helps strengthen unity within the group and beyond.

How Do I Get Involved?

Anyone who identifies as an A.A. member and has a desire to stop drinking can become a member. Attend two consecutive business meetings to become a member at large. Becoming a member at large gives the right to vote. Annual elections for Chair positions take place following the ACYPAA (All of California Young People in Alcoholics Anonymous) Round-Up between February and April. Members and non-members can stand for positions during elections.

Where do you meet?

The NAPYPAA business meeting is the first and third Sunday of each month from 5:30pm to 6:30pm.
