Seeking Sponsor for New Alateen Meeting

There is a request for a new Alateen meeting at the Ozone House in Ypsilanti. Ozone House is an agency that provides shelter and support services to youth who are in unsafe living situations. They are looking for someone to facilitate an Alateen meeting on Monday nights at their Ypsilanti location. To be an Alateen sponsor you must have 2 years in Al-Anon and pass a background check. There is also training for new sponsors. The District Alateen Coordinator can give guidance as well. If anyone is interested in this service position, please contact Robin R <>. Please announce this at your group meetings, thanks!
