Outschool teachers create their own classes. What topics are you passionate about teaching? Which ages of learners do you want to work with? What experience or expertise do you have in these subject areas?
It’s fine to share high-level topics here (no need to have the perfect class title). Need help coming up with ideas? Check out our list of Recent Topic Requests here!

You should write this description as though it is for prospective families. Include information about what you will teach, how you will teach it, and what learners should expect from class time. This field is only for our team and will not be published on the site.

While there are differing opinions on whether the facilitator (MOTIVATORS) should be a trained “professional” or not, there are qualities of any facilitator that should be sought. The decision about whether you use a trained paid professional, volunteers, or some combination of this is up to each agency, but regardless of this decision, the following characteristics are important:
A Motivator needs to know the grief process, including signs of complicated grief.
A Motivator should know the impact of different types of losses on the grief process, especially loss that was traumatic (suicide, homicide, accident), or grief which is disenfranchised (not acknowledged by society).
A Motivator needs to understand group dynamics and how to respond to and manage certain situations that can arise when a group of people interact over time.
A Motivator needs to be accepting and nonjudgmental.
A Motivatorsneeds to be skilled at listening as well as communicating and teaching.
A Motivator needs to be able to demonstrate compassion, empathy, respect, and authenticity.
A Motivator needs to be comfortable with silence as well as conflict.
A Motivator needs to set boundaries, not just for the group members but also for themselves.
A Motivator should be flexible, able to adjust plans for a group as needed.
A Motivator should be aware of community resources, open to learning, and aware of when to seek help.

Prospective Motivators FAQ
What does PAUSE, Inc. offer Motivators?
We offer a platform for coaches to organize, promote, and deliver online classes.
Beautiful online listings for your classes
Access to our community of learners
Secure online payments
Integrated video chat platform and messaging
Responsive support via chat and email
We do our best to simplify the logistics, so you can focus on crafting the class experience.
What classes can I teach?
We encourage you to teach classes on topics you are passionate about and experienced with, and ideally that you have taught before. We welcome classes on all subjects and in all formats, for learners age 18+. PAUSE does not provide classes for adults or children struggling with medically diagnosed mental health issues unless referred by their physician as supportive therapy. Motivators will not report to the referring physician.
We generally suggest the Motivators offering a range of classes, known as MOMENTS, including short-form introductory classes that meet 1-4 times, as well as longer-form semester-long classes. We have found it hard to predict what classes are popular on PAUSE, thus the MOMENT's evaluations are heavily weighted when it comes to reoffering the MOMENT.
So we suggest listing a range of options and then iterating based on the response.
All classes should involve significant interaction with the Motivator.
We do not sell curriculum or self-paced classes.
What can I earn? What does this cost?
Your earnings will depend on what your classes cost, and how many people sign up. PAUSE collects a 30% service fee from all paid enrollments. We will send your payment 7-10 days after your class is scheduled to start. Payment is via Paypal to the email address you specify. You will need to pay tax on your earnings and report them appropriately.
Can I use PAUSE, Inc. to promote classes that are sold elsewhere?
No. Because PAUSE relies on an integrated video chat system,
all attending learners must be enrolled through the PAUSE website.
If you have a MOMENT (Simple offering, info session, course, workshop) that you would like to teach on the PAUSE platform, we are excited to invite additional instructors
to submit their materials for consideration:
There is a $25 submission fee per MOMENT.
Upon submission the board will review the content of the curriculum for:
- Aligns with PAUSE's Core principles & holds core requirements

After board approval, the course will be promoted & Advertised through PAUSE
1 space in the first class will be reserved for a PAUSE Chairman to Audit.
