In February of 2005, a group of young recovering alcoholics formed NYCYPAA. In September, the standing committee approved the following mission statement:

NYCYPAA Mission Statement

We, the members of New York City Young People in Alcoholics Anonymous (NYCYPAA), have adopted A.A.’s primary purpose: to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety. NYCYPAA is an A.A. committee comprised of A.A. members, directly responsible to the young alcoholics of the five boroughs of New York City. All alcoholics are welcome to participate. NYCYPAA’s practical goals are derived from A.A.’s three legacies. We strive to:

  1. Support young alcoholics in their recovery through the 12 steps of A.A.
  2. Promote unity among alcoholics of all ages.
  3. Encourage young members of A.A. to participate in A.A.’s General Service Structure.
