Teaching at PUGS

What do I consider a teacher should be? One who breathes life into knowledge so that it takes new form in progress and civilization.
- Helen Keller
Make a difference in people's lives. If you have expertise + passion for a topic, suggest a course and we'll help you design the curriculum.
PUGS believes in profit-sharing. We pay instructors half the profits after expenses (i.e. net revenue). That way we profit with, not from teachers.
We strongly prefer our instructors to be students first. We want people to invest in the community + understand our vibe and our ethos before teaching. If you are interested in teaching at PUGS, please sign up for a course.
Note: we are actively looking for instructors to teach courses on Portland history, Portland current events, and social justice.
"Engaging with enthusiastic students in what I care most about helped me to get my mojo back. It brought out feelings of inspiration and discovery that I had long forgotten." - Peter Michael Bauer, Rewilding 101
