How to Become an Independent Contractor / Instructor at LGS Recreation

We appreciate your interest in becoming an Independent Contract Instructor with LGS Recreation. Independent Contract Instructors allow our agency to offer a variety of programs and activities as we rely on you as the activity expert. We are looking for qualified individuals or companies to partner with in serving our community a wide range of programs. Programs may be designed for preschoolers, school age children, teens, adults, families and seniors. We are always open to new, creative and trendy ideas, so feel free to bring something new to our attention.

In order to become an instructor with LGSR, a potential instructor must do the following:

  1. Submit a Class Proposal Form (Click here to download form)
  2. LGSR will coordinate a meeting with appropriate Supervisor who oversees that activity/age group
  3. If classes are accepted by LGSR, you will complete an Instructor Contract and submit all supporting documents (W-9) including proper insurance and fingerprint/TB test if offering program to 18 years and younger.

The appropriate LGSR Supervisor/Coordinator will review the “New Class Proposal” and coordinate a meeting with the potential instructor to discuss the course and all details. If the Supervisor/Coordinator decides to proceed with the course, the instructor will be asked to provide specific class details including course dates, times and instructor bio etc. As a new Independent Contract Instructor you will be emailed a (annual) contract to be signed via “DocuSign”. You will be required to provide Liability Insurance with an Endorsement Letter and submit Fingerprint and negative TB test results if you are instructing participants 18 years and younger. Your Supervisor/Coordinator will provide you with more information regarding the complete process.

We look forward to meeting you. Please contact the office if you have further questions.
