Bridging the Gap

Home » Bridging the Gap


One way that you can be of service to Alcoholics Anonymous is to become a volunteer for the Bridging the Gap program. Do Twelfth Step work for another alcoholic who is reaching out.

The Bridging the Gap program (BTG) volunteer helps connect a newcomer to Alcoholics Anonymous. When someone contacts A.A. for help we match that person to a temporary contact. The temporary contact volunteer arranges to attend a variety of A.A. meetings with this newcomer introducing him/her to other A.A. members. This temporary support can sometimes make all the difference in attracting the newcomer to what A.A. in our area has to offer.

As the volunteer you extend your hand and carry the A.A. message to a newcomer (or a member that has relapsed).
