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.
