Program Instructor Opportunities

Yarmouth Community Services (YCS) is currently recruiting instructors and course/program ideas for both youth and adults for the 
Spring/Summer 2020 season. The key to our program success is based on our qualified instructors and their dedication, enthusiasm, and knowledge. You may have a specific interest, hobby or expertise to share. YCS offers a wide variety of classes, activities, and camps that meet the diverse needs and interests of the Yarmouth community. Adult offerings tend to be one night workshops, active classes or unique programs. Youth programs tend to be offered for a one or two-week summer camp in fitness, sports, arts, and enrichment. 


Program Date Information:


Your program dates should be planned between the dates of April 13th - August 28th 2020. You should avoid scheduling your program on the following dates: 

  • April 20-24 - School Vacation Week

  • May 25 - Memorial Day

  • 4th of July

  • July 17th - Clam Fest


• Please do not plan on starting your program until the week of April 13th, 2020 (unless you have received permission from YCS). This gives participants enough time to register for classes. Programs that start to close to the registration date rarely go!


Program Fee Information

We make every effort to keep our programs affordable and accessible. However, during these fiscally challenging times, we are expected to operate at a “self-sustaining” level. YCS will split the revenue with 70% going to the instructor(s) and 30% going to YCS.


Here’s an example: If the instructor sets the price of the program at $50 per person, YCS would receive $15 (30% of revenue) and the instructor(s) would receive $35 (70% of revenue) per person. 


Please note that lab fees can be charged to the student and are payable directly to the instructor.


All Spring/Summer 2020 course proposals must be received by February 1, 2020.  If we do not hear from you by February 1st, we will assume that you are not interested in teaching with YCS this season.


Should you have any questions, or need some assistance in helping to create or modify a course proposal, please feel free to call. We look forward to hearing from you and having you as part of our Spring/Summer 2020 program team.


To submit a course proposal, please complete the form below. YCS reserves the right to reject any course proposal for any reason.
