Become An Instructor

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. Anyone interested in becoming an instructor must complete a Contract Instructor Application. (Workshops or classes designed to sell or recommend products from your business is prohibited.) We recommend reviewing past issues of SANDS Programs, Recreation, Community & Library Services Guide to verify a similar program is not already offered.

Contract instructors do not rent City facilities, however a portion of the fees collected are retained by the City to cover facility usage, registration, administration and promotion of the class in the SANDS. Due to print deadlines and internal vetting processes, it is recommended that applications are submitted approximately six months before wishing to begin instruction.
