Volunteer Group Fitness Instructors in Hartford - Sober Active Community

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: The Phoenix

Support sober active communities in Hartford, CT!

The Phoenix is a nonprofit helping to build sober active communities with people who are in recovery, are sober, or are friends, families and allies. This is done through events like group fitness, walks, hikes, arts & crafts, and so much more! All events are free to join.

We're looking for volunteer instructors to lead community group fitness classes in Hartford or nearby areas. A fitness certification isn't necessarily needed, but we do ask you have experience in the activity!

If you have a background in instructing group fitness classes, have experience in recovery, live a sober lifestyle, or have a strong passion and commitment to social justice and mental health, and want to help your community, we want to hear from you!

The following are examples of fitness disciplines to instruct:

  • Dance - including but not limited to the following: Cardio Fitness, Salsa, Hip Hop, Tango, Ballet
  • Shadowboxing
  • High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)
  • Bootcamp
  • Strength Training
Other Things to Know:
  • We ask volunteers to complete an online training (about 2 hours long to complete at your own pace) about The Pheonix and event safety and inclusivity
  • We also require a background check. Recognizing that we come from different experiences, a record doesn’t automatically disqualify you from volunteering.
  • Volunteers must be at least 18 years old

About The Phoenix

Location:

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.
