Being in service to others, can change you and help keep you sober.
Newly sober (less than 6 months) or with a few years of sobriety, it is suggested that you get a service commitment. So what are these Service positions? What do they do and who do I talk to about Volunteer opportunities?

Answer Hotline Calls
The 2022 Hotline is an automated phone answering system that routes incoming calls directly to the personal phones of volunteers. This makes it convenient for AA members to take a call without being in our office.
Using the information on this website, volunteers field calls about upcoming meetings and events. We are available 24 hours a day to help people learn about AA for either themselves, or a family member. Crisis calls received may need a call back from a volunteer on the 12 Step Call List of AA members.

Join the 12 Step Call List
When someone calls our Hotline and needs a call back from someone in recovery…we go to this list.
The list is a collection of information about men and women who are willing to respond to the person who has called AA for help—day or night. These are men and women who believe it is very important to give back what was so freely given to them.
HOW IT WORKS: When a calls comes in, you would receive the name and phone number of the person who needs help in your area. Men are assigned to men and women to women. You would call back and start the ball rolling from there.
QUALIFICATIONS: Willingness to help a human being suffering from our disease is the most essential ingredient. It’s also suggested that you have at least one year of sobriety.
PRIVACY: The hotline will give you the phone number of the caller: Your number will NEVER be given to the crisis caller.
