Bridging the Gap
Dear AA Member,
One way that you can be of service to Alcoholics Anonymous™(A.A.) is to become a volunteer for the Bridging the Gap (BTG) program. Do Twelfth Step work for a still suffering alcoholic interested in our fellowship.
The BTG volunteer helps connect a person to A.A.. When someone contacts A.A. for help we match them to a temporary contact. The temporary contact volunteer (you) arranges to attend a variety of A.A. meetings with the person, introducing them to other A.A. members. This temporary support can sometimes make the difference by presenting to the newcomer what A.A. has to offer.
As a volunteer you can extend your hand and carry the A.A. message to a newcomer or perhaps a professional interested in discovering what we are about.
“It works—it really does!”
