Contract Class Instructors

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

The City of Huntington Beach's Community Services program is always looking for quality, dedicated instructors to offer a variety of programs to our residents and surrounding community.

The best contract instructor candidates are individuals who combine a sincere interest in community service with a desire to supplement their existing income.

A Contract Instructor is an independent contractor for the City (Contract Instructors are not employees) who is interested in providing a service to the community in the form of a class, workshop, or camp.  All who are interested in becoming an instructor must complete the Contract Instructor Application and submit it to the City of Huntington Beach Community Services Department.

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 the class in the HB Sands.

The City's payment split for contract classes is 70/30 for Instructional classes and 60/40 for Art Center classes.
