SOCALYPAA is an annual and large scale conference of the Southern California Young People in Alcoholics Anonymous. The purpose of this conference is to carry the message of AA to the alcoholic who still suffers, and to foster a consistent fellowship that will continue to thrive.

Our Beginning

The formation of SOCALYPAA stemmed from GSDYPAA, the Greater San Diego Young People in Alcoholics Anonymous committee. Members of this committee experienced the excitement and fervor brought by their participation in the 2008 ACYPAA bid process, and concluded that Southern California would benefit greatly from a second annual YPAA Conference.


“The unifying effect of bidding for and hosting a YPAA conference is something that committees from all parts of California should have the privilege of experiencing.”

Advisory council extends their applause to IVYPAA for hosting SOCALYPAA 8  in the Inland Valley in 2016. The conference was a huge success. Congratulations GSDYPAA for being awarded the opportunity to host SOCALYPAA 9 in San Diego! We want to thank all the bid committees for their participation in the bid process. Bid committees are the life blood of any conference, and if you are interested in bidding, click the bidding link to learn more.
