If you have a special talent or subject-matter knowledge and want to share it with others, think about becoming a Contracted Program Instructor.  We are always looking for people to teach arts and crafts, jewelry making, painting, drawing, cooking, health and fitness classes, and more!  If you would like to work for CRPR as an Independent Contractor (this option requires that you provide your own general liability insurance), your first step is to complete an Instructor Questionnaire.  This is a PDF Fillable document, so be sure to save your work before you close the document; then, please send it as an attachment with any other documents to CRPR when you are ready!
