As a prospective community partner with RHC, you will assume the role of an Independent Contractor (IC). This arrangement means that RHC will not be your employer, and any tax-related responsibilities will not be handled on your behalf by the organization. Instead, you will establish an agreement directly with the parents and families of RHC, who will compensate you directly for the classes or tutoring services you offer. 

RHC partners with facilitators who are able and willing to: 

- Treat learners with respect and kindness, maintaining a positive, supportive, and neurodivergent affirming learning environment.
- Use learners' preferred names and pronouns, communicate openly with parents, and be accommodating to diverse learning needs.
- Accept responsibility for collecting fees directly from learners' families using various payment methods.
- Consider the possibility of varying class sizes each semester and be willing to adjust class offerings accordingly.
- Have a plan in place for addressing absences, class cancellations, and potential reimbursement for services not rendered.

We are an inclusive-secular community that does not discriminate based on race, ethnicity, class, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability,  religion, or national origin. Our member families come from many different backgrounds and may practice various religious traditions—or none at all. We welcome families who are willing and able to respect the differences of others and work together with people who may not share their backgrounds.

Substitutes and Absences

We understand that unforeseen circumstances may arise and lead to an unavoidable absence, class cancellation, or incomplete sessions. As you create your class proposal, we recommend openly communicating your approach to absences, class cancellations, and potential reimbursement for services not rendered. 

Here are some options to consider:

  1. Arrange for a qualified substitute facilitator, if possible.

  2. Conduct the class online for upper-level courses.

  3. Schedule a make-up class during designated tech weeks.

  4. Provide learners with relevant materials for at-home study
