Sylvan Lakers of various skills and abilities are being asked to consider sharing their expertise with others in the community.

The Town of Sylvan Lake is seeking instructors for Recreation, Parks and Culture department programs beginning next month.

The department ran a variety of programs last fall, and special events and program co-ordinator Michelle Morrison said more are being slated for the future, creating in an increased need for instructors.

“We’re seeking anyone within the area that has a skill they would like to share,” Morrison said. “At this point in time, I am open to trying anything new and not currently happening in the community. We’re trying to fill in gaps right now as some people have to travel to Red Deer to participate in a program.”

Teaching a program allows instructors to share their skills on a particular subject or activity while earning some extra cash, as programs require registration and fees.

Instructors work one to two nights a week on average, depending on what programs they teach.

“A lot of instructors sometimes work part-time jobs, but they are looking to work on the side as well,” Morrison said. “We get a big range (of instructors), which may include full-time art instructors.”

New programs may include sports, clay art classes, cooking and oil painting. The programs can be taught locally in meeting rooms and gym facilities.

“I am hoping to provide the community with a range of activities and opportunities that they might not have access to, and different opportunities to pursue different interests of theirs,” Morrison said.

Potential instructors are required to submit a resume, references and a program outline and attend an interview at the Sylvan Lake Aquatic Centre.
