Various fitness instructors needed for community-based programs

The Phoenix has a need for certified/credentialed fitness instructors and/or non-credentialed program support to help lead community-based fitness events once a week. If you have a background in fitness (one of the below), have direct experience in recovery (ideal but not a requirement), and/or 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! If you do not have a fitness background but are simply passionate to participate, we want to hear from you too! The following fitness disciplines are highly desired:

  • Community Fitness
  • Kickboxing/Martial Arts
  • Surfing
  • Rock-climbing
  • Cycling/Cardio (outdoor cycling and long-distance running)
  • Yoga - a strong need for program support for existing volunteer instructors

If you don't have a certification in one of these but believe your specialization may add value to our communities, we want to hear from you too!

As a Volunteer Instructor, you will:

  • Be certified in your area of discipline + CPR/AED (we can provide support training for the last piece if you don't have one)
  • Lead 1 class every week (or month), depending on community needs (1-2 hours MAX)
  • Commit to long-term volunteering, ideally 5-6+ months if possible
  • Complete our Phoenix 101 and FEPSIA Training (all completed online) -- you will be tested for competency to memorize our Community Standards.
  • Be age 18+
  • Help spread the word and bring a friend (or two) to help drive attendance!

As a Program Support Volunteer, you will:

  • Complete our Phoenix 101 in order to understand our Community Standards and help the Volunteer Instructor with setting up, socializing/mingling with attendees, ensuring everyone is registered, participate in the activity or take photos for our social media pages, etc.
  • Attend just 1 program (1-2 hours MAX) every week to support a class in your community (you will be paired with a Volunteer Instructor).
  • Help with community outreach by sharing/spreading the word to your peers and inviting people to help drive participants.
  • Be age 18+

Note: All events are held in outdoor spaces. We require to wear masks and practice social-distancing 6-8 feet minimum at all times. Every event will provide supplies, equipment, and PPE.
