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 GSDYPAA for hosting SOCALYPAA 9  in San Diego in 2017. The conference was a huge success. Congratulations to the "Do or Die" Meeting for being awarded the opportunity to host SOCALYPAA X in Orange County! We want to thank all the bid committees for their participation in the bid process.
