CAL – Alateen Safety Guidelines (Item # G-34)

G-34 Guideline

WHAT I LEARNED: 1. According to this Alateen guideline, any reporting of child abuse is done on a personal basis, not as an Alateen Sponsor or an AMIAS (an Al-Anon Member Involved in Alateen Service).  This is done with Tradition 10 in mind to keep the fellowship out of public controversy!

2. Even though I’m not a certified Alateen Sponsor, I can still serve Alateen by letting parents know of Alateen meetings in the area, discuss Alateen literature in Al-Anon meetings, & bring material with me to public outreach functions.  In fact, some of my biggest selling items at an AA Gratitude Dinner was the information on Alateen!

    Alateen is a wonderful journey for young people. It is part of an adult program that puts people on the road to recovery. Imagine if I had started as a teen or even a tween! Alateen sponsorship is a unique way of getting busy and getting better. It’s In Your Face. The honesty overwhelms us.

      Yeah, I wish I had known about Alateen when I was in highschool. Definitely could have used it!
