Looking for Teachers/Homeschool Classes at Yavapai College’s Community Education Program

Nancy Ostapuk, Director of the Community Education program at Yavapai College, reached out to me to help spread the word about building and supplying some year-around homeschool classes for our local homeschool community. We’ve emailed a bit back and forth so I would like to include some of the things she has mentioned in her emails. If you find yourself interested in becoming an instructor (paid!) or you are interested in enrolling your children at regular cost or on scholarship, keep reading!!

I’m the director for the Prescott Community Education, College for Kids, and EDventures program at Yavapai College. Every summer, we offer over 40 classes for children ages 5-17 and this past summer, many parents were asking why we don’t offer courses year round for children who are home schooled.

I would like to explore this option and like to speak with anyone who’d be willing to share their passion and expertise by offering non-credit courses to children. During the spring semester, classroom availability is greater on Friday/Saturdays. The non-credit program shares classrooms with the credit-side of the college and we plug classes into the holes wherever we can. During the summer, classroom space is limited because the college is closed Fri-Sun but we can strive to address any issue. My deadline to recruit new summer College for Kids’ courses is January 16, 2019. (Please refer to the flyers below for more detailed information about becoming an instructor.)

I would encourage any parent, wishing tuition assistance, to fill out a scholarship application. The amount of scholarships available differ each year. Last summer, awards went to everyone that submitted an application: one course per child.

***Please limit your family to **** ONE ADULT **** attending the concert because of limited space.. No exceptions. The POPS group wants as many CHILDREN to be able to participate as possible. If you have adult family members who want to go – the POPS group usually performs the same exact concert to the public the Sunday before the Thursday that we go. That Sunday concert is NOT free.

***If you have a small child that can sit on your lap, let me know so that I do not include them in our total counts.

In your email, message or post to me please indicate the total number in your family that are going, e.g., 1 adult, 1 child on my lap and 2 kids, etc.

Cheers,

Maggie
