The Montpelier Recreation Department is currently seeking instructors to offer fun and exciting recreational and educational classes to our community.  Our department offers a wide variety of recreational programs to citizens of all ages.  These programs take place in city parks, schools, and other locations.

If you possess the skills and abilities to teach a program which would be a GREAT addition to our Recreation curriculum, we’d like to meet you. All you have to do is submit a class proposal telling us about your class. Classes are a great way to bring in extra revenue doing something you love to do.
