Teaching With Us

Community classes are designed to meet the needs and address the interests of our community. If you have a skill, talent, or knowledge you would like to share, and you have developed a course, seminar or workshop, then we would like to hear from you. Previous teaching experience and formal academic training are not necessarily required. We seek instructors possessing subject mastery, passion about their field, and the ability to communicate clearly.

Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our current offerings. If there is a subject not currently offered, and if you have a well-developed topic that you believe would be of interest to our community, please print the Community Education Fee-Based Class Proposal form, complete the form, and return it to College of the Canyons, Community Education.
