Join us for a week of exciting and educational events showcasing the artists, designers, musicians, filmmakers, authors, fashion and beauty changemakers who are lighting up our screens and airwaves to shift our consciousness and conversations for good.
The Phoenix is looking for support volunteers to support our community-based fitness events for our sober-active community once a week. If you 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!
As a Support Volunteer, you will:
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
Attend at least 1 program every week (1-2 hours MAX)
Commit to long-term volunteering, ideally 3+ months if possible
Complete our Phoenix 101 and FEPSIA Training (all completed online)
Support digital or in-person outreach in the community
Be age 18+
We are ultimately seeking someone who genuinely loves to help others. If this sounds like you, apply below!
Note: Currently all events are held in outdoor spaces. We require both instructors and participants to wear masks and practice social-distancing 6-8 feet minimum at all times. Every event we will provide supplies, equipment, and PPE.
Once you submit this form, our Program Coordinator will reach out a time to speak with you.
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.
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.
