Become a Phoenix SOAR Peer Supporter

Phoenix SOAR (Survivors Offering Assistance in Recovery) connects burn survivors and loved ones to a community of peer supporters who share similar experiences. As a Phoenix SOAR Peer Supporter, you will share knowledge, compassion, and a listening ear to new burn survivors and their loved ones.

Volunteer as a Peer Supporter

What sets Phoenix SOAR peer supporters apart is the training you receive, which ensures both the peer supporter and the patient feel comfortable. Before offering support, you'll need to pass a screening process and complete an interactive training.

Upcoming Peer Supporter & Coordinator Courses for 2023

Peer Support: September 16th & December 2nd

Phoenix SOAR Peer Supporter training courses are now completely virtual! Peer Supporter trainings will be offered on a pre-scheduled basis, most months of the year. The curriculum includes 4 hours of pre-course modules and quizzes, along with a 4 hour live (virtual) course with National Instructors. This may be completed from participants’ homes (pending adequate bandwidth to use webcam and Zoom or WebEx). Manuals are also now updated, revised, and in digital format! To register or learn more, please contact us.

Please note – Prior to course participation, we require registration and full screening by the Phoenix SOAR Hospital Coordinator. We encourage registration as soon as possible to secure a slot in your desired course.
