Apprentice Instructor Program
Our goal for members to help them replace their identities as alcoholics and addicts with that of sober athletes and mentors. Because we’re a peer-based organization, our employees are often asked how we became instructors at TP, and we’re happy to share: all of us started out as team members, became involved with the organization, began volunteering and improving our skills, and eventually were brought on as employees. Every instructor at TP has been hired through this process, and there isn’t a more fitting job for someone who is sober and living an active lifestyle. We encourage members to get started down this potential career path, and in some cases, we help individuals work toward certifications necessary to become TP instructors. Potential Apprentice Instructors display the following characteristics: adherence to the Team Member Agreement, a frequent presence as a team member and volunteer, humility, altruism, empathy, dedication, level-headedness, responsibility, and a desire to share their sober experiences and passion for The Phoenix’s mission with others. The Phoenix provides our apprentice instructors with employee pricing on TP merchandise, opportunities for subsidized trips, access to certain applicable pro deals and an invitation to a quarterly lunch with TP’s Director of Operations.
Volunteer Programs & Opportunities
The Volunteer Program is an essential part of all TP operations. In order to provide daily events free of charge and to continue our expansion in Colorado and the rest of the country, we need a lot of help. TP is funded entirely through grants and individual donations, and volunteering is an extension of this willingness to give. We believe that volunteering and being of service to others is beneficial in working toward the formation of a positive sober identity. Volunteer opportunities are plentiful at TP and might include any of the following: seconding an instructor at active event, helping put together mailings to be sent out, working at an aid station for a race, supporting staff during a multisport trip, prepping for the opening of a new building, cleaning and organizing The Phoenix gear, spreading the mission of The Phoenix at an outreach event… the list goes on.
Through volunteering, Phoenix members further strengthen not only their own recovery but the recovery of hundreds of others. Volunteerism is highly encouraged both for The Phoenix and other community organizations.
