This Outdoor Instructor position would be eligible for excellent benefits including medical, dental, vision, a 403(b)-retirement plan, and paid time off (PTO). If this sounds like the right opportunity for you, apply today to join our nonprofit in helping individuals with substance use disorders grow in confidence through outdoor recreation and other active pursuits!



We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with the mission of fostering a supportive, physically active community for individuals who are recovering from a substance use disorder and for those who choose to live sober. Since 2006, our free sober active community has inspired more than 36,000 people across America to believe they have the strength to rise from the ashes of addiction through the support of those who are walking the same path. Using a peer support model, we help members heal and rebuild their lives while also striving to eliminate the stigma around recovery. By participating in our physical, social, and educational programs, participants build confidence, self-respect, and community. We offer CrossFit, climbing, hiking, boxing, running, yoga, road & mountain biking, strength training, and other activities. We currently operate in 45 communities across 24 states.

Without the programming led by our employees, none of this would be possible. We attract and retain talented and motivated individuals by offering an exceptionally fun and rewarding job along with solid compensation.



As an Outdoor Instructor in Dallas, you are helping to grow a new area so that more people have access to our services. You lead outdoor recreation activities, assist with program development, and participate in outreach. In addition to facilitating activities like biking, running, hiking, indoor rock climbing, and group fitness, you get to plan and lead periodic overnight events. Flexible and on-the-go, you thrive in this dynamic, creative, and fast-paced environment.

As a full-time instructor, you help recruit, train, and support volunteers. You keep programming spaces accessible, clean, safe, welcoming, and trauma-informed to ensure that they reflect our core values and community standards. You may also help with equipment maintenance, administrative tasks, and fundraising efforts.

As an ambassador for The Phoenix, you ensure quality and consistency at all events by cultivating relationships, supporting volunteers, and maintaining positive relationships with community partners. You find your job uplifting and engaging and get great satisfaction out of making a positive impact in the lives of those rising from the ashes of substance use disorders.
