2017 Fall Assembly: Young Persons Committee Report

2017 Fall Assembly: Young Persons Committee Report

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 speaker by going to the R2 Website and signing up.

In addition to helping spread the message by obtaining more Young Person speakers, the Committee worked with representatives from the Spring 2017 R2 Convention to support a YP Workshop at the Costa Mesa Convention. The Committee also distributed the YP Fact Sheet at the convention to make the region aware of ways for young people to get plugged into OA.

A final project that the Committee is working to develop is an YP Strategy Sheet to be sent throughout the Region to encourage more efforts to reach out to young people.

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

Scott B.,
R2 YP Committee Chair
