About Us

Has your sponsor told you to get involved in Service Work? Do you ever have the feeling that your sobriety is missing something? Would you like to have a host of friends and see a fellowship grow up among you? Then the Tennessee Bid for ICYPAA is looking for YOU!

The TN Bid for ICYPAA is a group of young and enthusiastic people in Alcoholics Anonymous from all over Tennessee and we are excited to be working together to bid for ICYPAA, the International Conference of Young People in AA.

We meet at 6pm on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of every month at 202 Friendship House in Nashville and we would love to see you there!

So show up, meet other young people, get involved, learn what our bidding process for ICYPAA is all about and, most importantly, come and have some fun with us! We are most definitely “not a glum lot” and are all looking forward to meeting you and “trudging the Road of Happy Destiny” together.
