Please note: All instructor recruitment is currently on hold as a preventative measure in response to mitigating the spread of COVID-19.
The City of Huntington Beach's Community Services Department is always looking for quality, dedicated instructors to offer a variety of programs to our residents and surrounding community.
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.
