Grassroots Community Space Offers Paid Teaching Opportunities with New In-House Programming

Grassroots Community Space is now hiring teachers in addition to offering affordable facility rental space from $25 an hour.

Jersey City, NJ, September 24, 2011 --( In the fast growing community of Downtown Jersey City, Grassroots Community Space has served as a cultural hub for emerging artists, performers and instructors since 2008. The venue serves as a 1,000 square foot event space for hire, and has hosted classes that have included yoga, capoeira, hula hoop fitness, and meditation. Grassroots Community Space has long been committed to providing teaching opportunities for those that want to share their passion, and is now seeking teachers on an invitational basis to lead In-House Programming.

Selected teachers will be compensated with a competitive hourly rate to lead their proposed program. Grassroots Community Space will extend structural support and coordinate students, handle student payments, prepare marketing materials, and promote both the course and the teacher. The venue is also available on a facility rental basis to those interested in leading independent community courses, with rates starting from $25 an hour.

With the new Grassroots Community Space In-House Programming, teachers will only be required to create a dynamic program for students to participate in and to lead the class. Grassroots Community Space will handle all logistic elements to ensure a smooth experience for both the teacher and the participating students, as well as provide robust marketing efforts for a successful and well-attended event.

Grassroots Community Space is currently seeking the following classes to add to the new Fall programming: Yoga, Tai Chi, low-impact group aerobic classes, and alternative fitness.

“Open your mind, be creative, and leave your mark,” Grassroots Community Space founder Chelo Mercado emphasizes. “It is my hope that the new In-House Programming will provide job opportunities that will not only allow teachers to have a venue to instruct, but enrich the community with new ideas.”
