Contract Classes Instructors

Here in Huntington Beach, we believe passionately that the key to establishing an exceptional contract class program begins and ends with finding the right people to provide these services. We are continuously looking for the professional and exemplary independent contractors to provide high-quality programming services for the City of Huntington Beach.

A contract instructor is an independent contractor for the City (contract instructors are not employees) who provides a service to the community in the form of a class, workshop, or camp. Please note, workshops, or classes designed to sell or recommend products from your business is prohibited. We recommend reviewing past issues of SANDS Community Services Recreation & Programs Guide to verify a similar program is not already offered. 

Interested in teaching a Contract Class for the City of Huntington Beach?

The best candidates for contract class instruction are those whom combine a sincere interest in community service with a desire to supplement their existing income.

Contract instructors do not rent the City facilities. However, a portion of the fees collected are retained by the City to cover facility usage, registration, administration, and promotion of classes in the SANDS Recreation Guide.

The City pays the contractor a percentage of the total enrollment fees collected, minus a $6 per person administration fee. The City's standard payment split for contract classes:

Instructional classes

70% to instructor, 30% to City

Art Center classes

60% to instructor, 40% to City
