Protect Yourself in Zoom
Zoom Tips for Beginners
These meetings are back to meeting LIVE (or a hybrid)
There are no Alateen meetings in Pennsylvania at this time. Young people who are affected by someone else's drinking are always welcome at any Al-Anon meeting, and Alateen meetings are available via the Al-Anon mobile App (see https://al-anon.org/newcomers/teen-corner-alateen/try-an-alateen-chat-meeting/). The PA Area World Service Committee (AWSC) is undergoing the process to reestablish and recertify the Alateen program in our state. Thank you for your patience.
The RAP (Reaching Al-Anon People)AISDV is still in need of a RAP Editor. (Anyone interested can attend the AISDV Service Board meeting on Thursday, Sept 16, 2021.)
The RAP is the newsletter of the Al-Anon Information Service of the Delaware Valley (AISDV). AISDV serves the greater Philadelphia area plus Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery counties, including Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 19, 20, 31, and 32.
Consider being an "e-buddy." By serving as an e-buddy, you are offering to receive information electronically, and print it out for the group. This is especially helpful if members of the group do not use the Internet.
Would you like The R.A.P. emailed directly to your inbox? Email your contact info to RAP@aisdv.org.
