ThePhoenix

The Phoenix is looking for an outreach coordinator to spread messaging of our community-based fitness or social events for our sober-active community! If you have direct experience in recovery (ideal but not a requirement) and are 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 Volunteer Instructor, you will:

  • Contact potential member pools (sober homes, treatment centers, Recovery-focused Facebook groups, etc., in an effort to spread our community and drive our mission
  • Commit to long-term volunteering, ideally a couple of hours per week, 3+ months if possible
  • Consent to a background check *note that we review background checks on a case-to-case basis and do not automatically disqualify people with a record
  • Help spread the word and bring a friend (or two) to help drive attendance!
  • Be age 18+

Interested? Please visit www.thephoenix.org/volunteer to learn more and fill out the interest form!

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.
