Have you ever wondered if you would be a good fit for teaching at The Boise Co-op? Here are a few important points about our classes to consider and the information you will need to provide.
Classes taught at The Co-op meet these primary goals:
- Affordable: The Boise Co-op sets the price of classes with the goal of keeping class fees low and accessible to our community members.
- Educational: Classes held in our store are educational and not for the purpose of selling a product or business.
- Accessible: Our classes provide a welcoming, inclusive environment for learning, including information that is well-researched, organized, and non-judgmental.
- Sustainable: Our classes support The Co-op’s ideals of promoting fresh, local, organic, and sustainable foods and food systems.
- Inspiring: Community members are inspired by our classes to pursue wellness goals; purchase fresh, local, wholesome foods; and be informed consumers of other health and wellness-related products.
- High Quality: We focus on the quality of our classes, not quantity! Our presenters are well-informed, skilled educators with prior teaching experience.
- Supportive: Our instructors/presenters are paid based on how many people take the class. The cost of supplies will be deducted and the instructor receives 80% of the balance. We also handle all class registrations, set class fees, provide copies of instructor-created handouts to class attendees, help with room set-up and promote the classes through in-store signage, flyers, notification on our website calendar and social media.
