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. Those interested in becoming an instructor must complete the Contract Instructor Application and submit it to the City of Huntington Beach Community Services Department.
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's payment split for contract classes is 70/30 for instructional classes and 60/40 for Art Center classes.
