WCYPAA (Wilmington Committee of Young People in Alcoholics Anonymous) is an A.A. service committee created in the spirit of the 5th and 9th Traditions, having a primary spiritual aim:  That of carrying the A.A. message to the alcoholic who still suffers.  We do not propose to be a universal answer or a governing body for young people.  Our greatest  responsibility is to serve those young alcoholics who wish to walk hand in hand with the spirit of the universe.  Our hope is to unify and energize young people in and around the Wilmington area and across the state of North Carolina by practicing the principles of A.A. through meetings, events, and outreach.  Together, we are inspired by the spirit of service and the necessity of  “absolutely insisting on enjoying life!”  We are not a glum lot!  We, the members of WCYPAA, embody A.A.’s primary purpose:  to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.  WCYPAA is an A.A. committee comprised of A.A. members, directly responsible to young alcoholics in the Wilmington area and across the state of North Carolina.  All alcoholics are welcome to participate, both the young and the young at heart. We offer the newcomer the opportunity to be rocketed into the fourth dimension   through participation in the three legacies:

1. Encourage young members of A.A. to participate in A.A.’s General Service Structure.

2. Support young alcoholics in their recovery through the 12 steps of  A.A.

3. Promote unity among alcoholics of all ages
