Become an Instructor
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
- 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 other marketing outlets.
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.
How to Become an Instructor
If you're interested in becoming an instructor or learning more about the process, please set up a meeting with the Recreation Manager. At the meeting be ready to discuss class information, class size, age ranges, location needs, and potential dates. Meetings will be held at the Parks & Recreation Department.
