Become An Instructor
A Contract Instructor is an independent contractor for the City (Contract Instructors are not employees) who is interested in providing a service to the community in the form of a class, workshop or camp. All who are interested in becoming an instructor must complete the Contract Instructor Application and submit it to the City of Newport Beach Recreation and Senior Services Department for review.

Contract instructors do not rent the city facilities, however a portion of the fees collected are retained by the City to cover facility usage, registration, administration and promotion of the class in the Newport Navigator. All applications must be submitted six to eight months prior to the desired session (however, summer classes are reviewed in October). Thank you for your interest in becoming a Contract Instructor for the City of Newport Beach Recreation and Senior Services Department.
