Independent Contractors

Have a Skill to Share with youth or adults?


The El Cerrito Recreation Department is looking to offer more classes for our community to enjoy. In order to do so, we need instructors! An instructor can be anyone who has a hobby that they wish to share with others. An instructor can also be any business owner who wants to highlight an area of their expertise while also promoting their business. And of course, an instructor can also be someone who already teaches classes and wants to teach one or two extra classes for the El Cerrito Recreation Department.

We are currently looking for instructors in areas such as as performing arts/drama, music, band, photography, language and more!

Why Become an Instructor?
