Teach for Kennewick Community Education

Thank you for your interest in becoming an instructor with the Kennewick Community Education program. We are a program of the Kennewick School District offering non-credit classes taught by community members who have an idea, talent, or passion they would like to share.

Community Education classes are targeted to adults to provide an enrichment experience. View our current catalog for examples of the type of classes we offer. Instructors for Community Education may choose to apply as a volunteer or as a casual employee of the district. The initial process to submit a proposal is the same for both volunteers and casual employees. We follow the District guidelines in approving both paid and volunteer instructors.

To propose a class, please complete the Community Education Course Proposal Form and email it to See below for additional frequently asked questions.

Final determination on class offerings will be made by the Community Education Coordinator with input from the Community Education Advisory Council.

Please feel free to call us at (509) 222-6977 with any questions or comments you may have. We look forward to hearing from you.
