The Phoenix Bid for ICYPAA began at the 60th ICYPAA in Baltimore, Maryland. As the story goes, about 30 Phoenicians made the trip to ICYPAA, the fire was lit and began to spread. As the Phoenix Bid for ICYPAA, we are all very different individuals but as we’ve thrived together, we’ve realized that our common bond is stronger than our differences. Unity, Service and Recovery is what binds us together. The love and dedication for the alcoholic who still suffers is what keeps us strong. Our commonality reminds us of the droves of young people without a solution. Our hope is to bring the solution, the love and the freedom that we have all found in this fellowship. We have found the solution to our problem and have found something so much greater than that. Each other.
