• Narateen is an important part of the worldwide fellowship of Nar-Anon Family Groups. Narateen provides support and hope to young people whose lives have been affected by a relative or friend’s addiction.  Narateen meetings are facilitated and monitored by certified experienced Nar-Anon members.

  • Duties:

    • Obtain approval to launch Narateen group meetings from the World Service Narateen Committee by creating and implementing Guidelines and a Safety Handbook that fulfils the requirements of both WS and the State of CA​

    • Recruit and train Adult Facilitators who help guide teens to ensure that the focus of the meetings is in keeping with the Twelve Steps, Twelve Traditions, and Twelve Concepts of Nar-Anon.

      • This committee must also  manage CA State background check requirements as required by the CA Dept. of Justice​

    • Launch group meetings once requirements are met

    • Pursue outreach efforts with the goal of expanding and improving the presence  of Narateen within the SoCal region and throughout the fellowship

      • Current open elected positions:  Vice Chair, Treasurer and NTPP (Narateen Process Person)

  • The 2021 budget was approved by the Regional Assembly

  • The SoCal Guidelines for Narateen was approved by the WS Narateen Committee in October 2019 and by the SoCal Regional Assembly in January 2020

  • The SoCal Narateen Committee Guidelines is currently under review and is expected to be submitted for approval to the Regional Assembly in April 2021

  • The committee usually meets by Zoom on the third Monday of each month at 6:30pm

    • Regular meetings have been temporarily suspended as we are still in a holding-pattern as we await approval from the CA State Dept. of Justice for a background check account so that we can operate legally as a volunteer organization for minors.  Until that time, meetings will only be called as needed as it is very difficult to proceed past this point without the approval.
