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. 

Peer Mentors

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: September 12-15, 2018 | Grand Rapids, MI.
  • Scholarship to assist with transporation, lodging, and attendance at Phoenix World Burn Congress is possible.

Applications for 2018 Peer Mentor roles are open until May 11th at midnight EDT!
