Volunteer Watersports Event Leader - Sober Active Community - San Antonio
Please visit the new page to apply.
The Phoenix is looking for volunteers to lead watersports for our sober active community. All watersports at The Phoenix share the intention of learning, challenge, and connection in a shared community setting. By offering both experiential and informational watersports, we have something for every member at every level. All our watersports are led by an instructor and are held in a group setting.
If you have experience in watersports like swimming, paddle boarding, kayaking (or others!), experience in recovery, live a sober lifestyle, have a strong passion and commitment to social justice and mental health, and want to help your community, we want to hear from you!
As a Volunteer Watersports Event Leader, you:
- Have experience in watersports
- May need Lifeguard Certification or discipline-specific training/certification depending on the activity. We can discuss during the volunteering welcome call
- Lead 1 event 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
2239 CHAMPA ST, DENVER, CO 80205, US
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.
