2016 Fall Assembly: Young Persons Committee Report


Young Persons Committee Report for Spring assembly Packet.

Energizing Youth For OA

The R2 Young Persons’ Committee would like you to consider signing up on the R2 Website as a Young Persons’ Speaker. The Committee wants to increase the number of members who can focus some of their experience strengthen and hope towards young people to help carry the message. In OA a Young Person is defined as anyone from 18 years of age to 30 years of age. If you have experience in recovery from the ages of 18 to 30, you can identify as a Young Person speaker so long as you have worked up to Step 5 and have at least two years of abstinence. Please consider identifying as a Young Person speak by going to the R2 Website and signing up.

In addition to helping spread the message by obtaining more Young Person speakers, the Committee is busy working on a Young Persons’ Workshop for the upcoming Spring 2017 R2 Convention to be held this year in Costa Mesa, California. It is the hope of the Committee that this Young Persons’ Workshop will be used around the Region to promote more involvement and interest in carrying the message to young people.

Members of the Committee are also working on translating the YP Fact Sheet into Spanish as well as making an effort to translate other Committee correspondence into Spanish. Another project that the Committee is working to develop is a YP Strategy Sheet to be sent throughout the Region to encourage more involvement and efforts to reach out to young people.

I wish to express my thanks to all members of the R2 YP Committee for their service an efforts this year.

R2 YP Committee Chair
