ALATEEN is a fellowship of young Al‑Anon members, usually teenagers, whose lives have been affected by someone else’s drinking.
PURPOSES OF ALATEEN
Young People Come Together To:
Every Alateen group must have at least one active adult member of Al‑Anon to serve as sponsor. Sponsors are an active part of the group, guiding and sharing knowledge of our Twelve Steps and Alateen Traditions. To serve as sponsors, they have must have satisfied all requirements of the Area Alateen safety policy. This includes passing a background check. Interested in Alateen sponsorship? See the Alateen Sponsors’ page.
Alateen members meet in church halls, school rooms or other suitable places. Sometimes they are in the same building as an Al‑Anon group, but in a separate room.) A complete schedule of Twin Cities area Alateen groups is available on this web site.
ALATEEN MEMBERS LEARN:
Members are encouraged to read Al-Anon and Alateen Conference-Approved Literature and materials, including the Alateen Talk newsletter. Written from members’ personal sharings, these recovery tools can help young people deal with their problems.
