Children's program with Jerry Moe
This is a 3 day educational program for children ages 7-12 living in families impacted by alcoholism or other drug addictions.
This program utilizes art, games, storyteilling, films, written exercizes, role play, and recreation to help youngsters build strengths and deepen their resilience. Skilled counselors lead the groups for children. Parents will participate with children for part of the last day. Space will be extremely limited and will be allocated in the order of registration.

Al-Ateen, part of the Al-Anon Family Groups, is a fellowship of young people whose lives have been affected by alcholism in a family member, or close friend. Al-Ateens help each other by sharing their experience, strength and hope with each other in meetings which are focused on topics selected by the group. The Al-Ateen program is coordinated by al-anon sponsors and focuses on the Twelve Steps in helping Al-Ateens grow mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

This will be the second annual meeting for young adults who have graduated from Alateen. These young people were impacted by the alateen program in such a positive way, that as they move past their teens into their twenties, they've decided to create the next step. Alatwenties program will be determined at the conference.
