We need A.A. members on the “outside” to correspond with A.A. members in correctional facilities across the U.S. and Canada.
Having prison experience is not a prerequisite — sobriety in A.A. is. Inmates are more interested in learning how we got and stayed sober through A.A.’s Twelve Steps, rather than hearing about time we may have spent in prison. If you would like to share your experience, strength and hope with A.A.s who are confined, please mail the tear-off form to G.S.O.’s Corrections Desk, or email the information email@example.com. (You can also access the form on the Corrections Committee page on our website at aa.org.) The name of an inmate, selected at random from a geographic region different from your own, will be sent to you from the General Service Office and you will make the initial contact through the mail. Those who have participated in this service have found sharing with inmates a very gratifying form of Twelfth Step work. We are happy to know there are A.A. members like you willing to help make it possible for the A.A. message to be carried to those on the “inside.”

Share your experience, strength and hope at Substance Abuse Traffic Offender Program / Weekend Intervention Program.
It’s located at the American Inn in North KC in the Kennedy Room and lasts from 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm Saturdays . Bring a friend to help you speak at the panel. It’s a very laid back atmosphere, about 10-15 people listen as I share. It’s always fun to let them ask me questions at the end.

It is suggested that the contact take the newcomer to a variety of A.A. meetings; introduce him or her to other A.A.’s; insure that he or she has phone numbers of several A.A. members and share the experince of sponsorship and a home group. See your GSR or Group BTG representative, to get your contact information to the BTG coordinator so you can be added to the Coordinators List
