Program Instructor Opportunities

Yarmouth Community Services (YCS) is currently recruiting instructors and course/program ideas for both youth and adults for the 
Spring to Summer 2023. 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 1 through August 31, 2023. For school-aged student programs, you may want to avoid scheduling your program on the following dates: 

  • September 5

  • October 7 & 10

  • November 11, 23-25

  • December 23-January 2

  • January 16

  • February 18-26

  • April 14 (Teacher In-service)

  • April 15-23 (April Vacation)

  • May 29 (Memorial Day)

  • June 19th

  • July 4th

  • July 21st (Clam Festival)

 

• Please do not plan on starting your program until the week of April 4, 2023 (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 2023 course proposals must be received by February 1, 2023  If we do not hear from you by then, 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 2022-2023 program team.
