PHOENIX MULTISPORT INC

The Phoenix needs certified/credentialed fitness instructors and/or non-credentialed program support to help lead community-based fitness events once a week. If you have a background in fitness (one of the below), have direct experience in recovery (ideal but not a requirement), and/or passionate about making a difference in people's lives by dedicating only 1-2 hours of your time a week, we want to hear from you! If you do not have a fitness background but are simply passionate about participating, we want to hear from you too! The following fitness disciplines are highly desired:

  • Community Fitness
  • Kickboxing/Martial Arts
  • Surfing
  • Rock-climbing
  • Cycling/Cardio (outdoor cycling and long-distance running)
  • Yoga - a strong need for program support for existing volunteer instructors

If you don't have a certification in one of these but believe your specialization may add value to our communities, we want to hear from you too!

As a Volunteer Instructor, you will:

  • Be certified in your area of discipline + CPR/AED (we can provide support training for the last piece if you don't have one)
  • Lead 1 class every week (or month), depending on community needs (1-2 hours MAX)
  • Commit to long-term volunteering, ideally 5-6+ months if possible
  • Complete our Phoenix 101 and FEPSIA Training (all completed online) -- you will be tested for competency to memorize our Community Standards.
  • Be age 18+
  • Help spread the word and bring a friend (or two) to help drive attendance!

As a Program Support Volunteer, you will:

  • Complete our Phoenix 101 to understand our Community Standards and help the Volunteer Instructor with setting up, socializing/mingling with attendees, ensuring everyone is registered, participating in the activity, or taking photos for our social media pages, etc.
  • Attend just 1 program (1-2 hours MAX) every week to support a class in your community (you will be paired with a Volunteer Instructor).
  • Help with community outreach by sharing/spreading the word to your peers and inviting people to help drive participants.
  • Be age 18+

Note: All events are held in outdoor spaces. We require to wear masks and practice social-distancing 6-8 feet minimum at all times. Every event will provide supplies, equipment, and PPE.

We welcome you to join the sober active community by completing the Volunteer Application Form here. Once you submit this form, our Program Coordinator will reach out a time to speak with you.

Mission Statement

The Phoenix offers a free sober active community to individuals who have suffered from a substance use disorder and to those who choose a sober life. Using a peer support model, we help members heal and rebuild their lives while also striving to eliminate stigma around recovery.

Description

The ultimate impact Phoenix seeks is to help individuals not only achieve sobriety, but to thrive in recovery. The Phoenix Model is unique because of its non-clinical approach that uses the power of human connection and positive coping mechanisms through physical activity to help people heal from the underlying causes of addiction.

Phoenix peer instructors use an experiential approach that leverages innate goal-setting association with engagement in physical activities while facilitating a positive and supportive experience, allowing team members to shed the defense mechanisms that have historically kept them isolated. By bringing people together, Phoenix creates a community where people can heal, obtain essential life skills, and practice effective social interaction. Research suggests facilitating physical activity, social connection and community are potent strategies for promoting health and healing from disease.
