Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: The Phoenix

We're looking for volunteers throughout New York City to help with outreach to: treatment centers, gyms and other fitness studios, and community centers. Some other projects, like tabling or helping to create flyers, may be helpful and needed too.

The Phoenix New York City is a chapter of The Phoenix, a nonprofit organization that helps create sober active communities through community events that help bring people together. These events are book clubs, music talks, fitness classes, yoga, meditation, walks, runs, and more! All events are completely free to attend.

As a Community Outreach Volunteer, you would help with any of the following. Most of this can be done on your own time and you’ll have the support of staff:

  • Alongside staff and other volunteers, help represent The Phoenix NYC at in-person outreach to treatment centers, gyms and other fitness studios, and community centers
  • Alongside staff and other volunteers, help represent The Phoenix NYC while tabling at events
  • Help identify potential outreach and awareness opportunities
Additionally, volunteers:
  • Have interest or experience in public communications or outreach
  • Commit to long term volunteering, ideally 3 months
  • Complete volunteer onboarding and training, which includes a phone call to help prepare you for the role and 15-minute training video
  • Are at least 18 years old
  • Do a background check. Recognizing that we come from different experiences, a record doesn’t automatically disqualify you from volunteering

About The Phoenix

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.
