Our students can't wait for you to be in the classroom!
TURN YOUR PASSION INTO SERVICE
If you're someone who has spent years mastering and practicing the principles of self-sufficiency and sustainable living and you share the love of wanting to save the planet, you've come to the right place! Teaching can be both a rewarding and passionate endeavor for many people. If that's you, then join our club of Community Worriors and register below to gain the opportunity to teach online and face-to-face classes at the Vine Communities School.
We work collaboratively with our registered instructors to create the best learning environment for all while accommodating their scheduling and logistical needs. Join a network of unique local and global Community Worriers who are helping to spread the 'know-how' of self-sufficiency to everyday people and especially our children. Our Instructors can choose to either volunteer to teach or receive an honorarium for the classes they teach.
All registered instructors will undergo a brief orientation program to ensure quality and consistency across the board and will receive the Vine Communities Instructor Badge. If some need further support, then we are able to offer a free of charge train the trainer program for those who need it. Once you're trained and you pass the first mock-up session, we will create a schedule for your programs and you'll experience the joy of knowledge transfer to both children and adults.
