Become an Instructor

Contracted Instructors

Do you have a skill or interest to share? Our Instructors conduct a variety of classes and workshops in our parks and facilities. From dance to art and martial arts to fitness, our talented Instructors enhance the quality and variety of programs we offer to the community.

The ideal instructors combine an interest in serving the community with a desire to supplement their existing income. We are very interested in developing long-term relationships with successful instructors. Our instructors are:

  • Independent contractors and are not employed by the Town of Prescott Valley
  • Under contract and paid a percentage of their program's gross revenue
  • Background checked by the Town of Prescott Valley prior to teaching any classes
  • Expected and encouraged to set the class tone and help develop the curriculum
  • Certified or able to obtain certifications for the classes they wish to teach

The Town of Prescott Valley provides the facilities, registration program, and marketing of the classes and programs through our social media, quarterly Recreation Guide, and monthly Town News.

Qualifications

To become an instructor, an individual must possess strong teaching skills, be positive, organized and dependable, have good communication skills; be prompt and reliable; and demonstrate a desire to develop and promote the program. We are interested in classes and workshops that are unique or fill a specific community need. Selections are made based on the instructor's qualifications and experience, date and time availability, preferred location, need for the program, and marketability of the program.
