ACA WSO Young Adults and Teens Subcommittee (YA&T)

We from ACA WSO Young Adults and Teens Subcommittee are a subcommittee designed to help people help each other. We welcome all ACA young adults, ACA teens, and their facilitators. We would like to work with members all over the world having, starting or would like to start an ACA Teen and Young Adult meetings. On our teleconferences and on our acawso Slack channel, members can share information and their experiences with each other. Our work between monthly meetings is conducted on Slack in our acawso Slack: channel #msc_teen_nd_yng_adlt.

– Slack is designed to replace email as the primary method of
communication and sharing.
– Acawso Slack is essentially a huge chats room with many channels for
our whole worldwide ACA fellowship.
– If you would like to be invited to our acawso Slack channel
– please write us an email at
so we can send you an invitation for the acawso Slack channel.

We help when possible to bridge the gap for teens as they move through school to adult/college/work life by:

– Contacting schools, orphanages, junior colleges for outreach
– Speaking at Mental Health Fairs and with Boards of Supervisors of
school districts to provide information about ACA for young adult and teens
– Writing articles for the ComLine, as well as announcements for the
Traveler geared towards young ACAs.

Want to help ACA Teens and Young Adults have their own meetings?
Do you have an ACA group willing to help facilitate a teen/young adults meeting?
