[Pictured Above: Peer Mentors and Supportive Programming Interns speak at closing ceremonies of Phoenix World Burn Congress 2017.]
About the Phoenix UBelong Young Adult Workshop
During Phoenix World Burn Congress, this multiple-day program focuses on peer support, self-discovery, and achieving personal goals for burn survivors and family members ages 18-25. The workshop is structured and planned to provide a purposeful, therapeutic support experience to participants.
This role provides an opportunity for young adult burn survivors (18- to 25-years old) to be a role model to their peers. They will also gain experience in therapeutic programming as a member of the facilitator team. Peer Mentors are volunteers who share their wisdom, their journey, and their hearts with their peer group at Phoenix World Burn Congress. Applicants must be motivated, with leadership experience and a commitment to being a role model to your peers.
- Peer Mentors must be available to attend the entire conference: October 1-5, 2019 | Anaheim, CA.
- Scholarship to assist with transporation, lodging, and attendance at Phoenix World Burn Congress is possible.
The 2019 Peer Mentor Application is now closed - Please check back early next year for information regarding the 2020 Peer Mentor program!
