Volunteer FAQs

What do Phoenix volunteers do?

The primary roles are: 1. Leading events: Facilitating Phoenix activities for which you are passionate about and have experience to offer. Certifications may apply based on the discipline. 2. Supporting events: Supporting Phoenix activities for which you are passionate about. Certifications are not required. 3. Outreach: Serving as an ambassador of the Phoenix to promote the impact, mission and events with your circles of influence. Certifications are not required.

What kind of commitment does it take to Volunteer?

We typically ask for a commitment of 2 hours per week for 6 months or more. We understand that’s not always possible, so the Phoenix is willing to work with your schedule to find the best fit. Supporting roles may offer additional flexibility.

Do I need to be in recovery to volunteer?

No. Phoenix volunteers can be peers who have lived experiences through their own recovery journey OR a personal connection to the mission—an ally in the sober community.
