Chapter Life

YPR Louisville is one of the founding Chapters of he organization. We started meeting shortly after the inception of Young People in Recovery in 2014. Since the, our Chapter has grown to make a large and lasting positive impact in the Louisville Recovery Community. We host weekly All Recovery Meetings at our Community Center in downtown Louisville. We play bi-weekly Recovery Dodgeball in the winter and Ultimate frisbee in the summer months. We host monthly Community Clean Ups and Recovery Hikes. We offer free virtual guided mindfulness meditation sessions every two week on Zoom led by a certified Deepak Chopra Guide. There are plenty of annual pro-social events we plan also including Super Bowl parties, chili cook offs, live music bonfires, Halloween costume parties, Friendsgiving gatherings, and Ugly Christmas Sweater parties. When any of our chapter members celebrate a recovery milestone; the group invites that person to plan the All Recovery Meeting in whatever format the wish. Through the years, our chapter leadership team has grown and sustained great success. The bonds we have made will never be broken! Come join what we like to call, “our YPR Family”!
