Los Angeles Intern Description
The Phoenix’s mission is to build a sober active community that fuels resilience and harnesses the transformational power of connection. Together we rise, recover, and live.
The Phoenix achieves its mission by offering CrossFit, yoga, meditation, boxing, and climbing classes to anyone with at least 48 hours of sobriety. All programs are 100% free to our “team members”. 80% of Phoenix team members stayed sober through their first 6 months and reported improved mental and physical health. Programs are offered both in person (when possible) and virtually.
The Phoenix LA is seeking a smart, resourceful, flexible intern to help bolster our work all around. Primary focus will be research and contacting keystone partners, holding key parts of the programming process, and interfacing with social media channels. Anyone interested in event planning, marketing, fundraising, nonprofits, or fitness should apply. People of color, LGBTQ identifying individuals, and people of all abilities and socioeconomic backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.
