The Phoenix

Support sober active communities in New York City!

The Phoenix NYC builds sober active communities that fuel resilience and harness the transformational power of connection so that together we rise, recover, and live. We're looking for music volunteers all across the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, or Staten Island!

Music at The Phoenix includes a wide range of offerings that encourage and support creative freedom and expression in a group setting.

Music programs include, but aren’t limited to:

  • Music lessons
  • Jam sessions
  • Open mic nights
  • In-person concerts
  • Songwriting sessions
  • And much more! Have an idea? Let us know!

As a volunteer, you:

  • Have experience in the activity you’ll be leading
  • Lead 1 class every week/month, for 1-2 hours max. This depends on community needs and your availability
  • Commit to long term volunteering, ideally 6+ months if possible
  • Complete a 2-hour online training. This can be completed at your own pace (i.e. can be stopped and restarted)
  • Do a background check. Recognizing that we come from different experiences, a record doesn’t automatically disqualify you from volunteering
  • Are at least 18 years old
  • Help spread the word and bring a friend or 2 to help drive attendance

About The Phoenix

Location:

2239 CHAMPA ST, DENVER, CO 80205, US

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.
