Whether you know us as "extension," "continuing education," "community education," or "lifelong learning," we represent a 3rd type of educational offerings community colleges in California can do besides classes "for-credit" (for degrees and certificates and with financial aid possible), or free, "noncredit" courses for basic skills development and career training.

In a nutshell, Community Services offers classes, events and other offerings for just about anyone in the community - old or young, resident or not, training for a career or just looking to have a good time. Our offerings are not-for-credit (no transcripts, degrees or CA Community College Certificate programs), and are 100% supported by fees or donations/contributions. We're kind of like public TV or radio, but the education version!

We help folks learn a skill, try out new things and connect with LACC and our neighbors in an educational setting.

Community Services Mission
To provide a wide array of student and community-supported classes, workshops, seminars, excursions, recreational and other offerings to all members of the community. We aim to contribute to the physical, mental, moral, economic and civic development of our surrounding community and in doing so, foster a sense of community and neighborhood.

Community Services strives to achieve the following program outcomes:

  • Provide a broad range of offerings that contribute to the development of the surrounding community
  • Employ qualified instructors with knowledge or skills specific to their topic of instruction
  • Provide flexible, individualized offerings for entities or individuals upon request
  • Provide instructional space that facilitates an effective, safe, and enjoyable learning environment for our offerings
  • Deliver auxiliary support offerings for LACC's credit and non-credit programs and for student support services
Los Angeles City College Mission
Los Angeles City College empowers students from the diverse communities it serves to achieve their educational and career goals by providing learner-centered pathways to success through transfer, career and technical education, and foundational skills programs.

Notary Loan Signing Seminar

Merri M.

Attended: Notary Loan Signing Seminar

This class was everything I needed! Rosie is a marvelous teacher. Finally, I believe I can move forward notarizing loan documents with confidence. Also, she made me aware of a couple income sources as a notary that I knew nothing about before. Kudos to Rosie. And kudos to you for offering this class.

Tennis Program (Beginning)


Attended: Tennis Program (Beginning)

Great introduction to tennis. Over the course of the class, we went over all the strokes for tennis (forehand, backhand, volleys, overheads, serves, slices). I hope this class is continued and offered regularly because I think more classes are needed to develop skills and put into practice what was taught. The class is very fun and it feels like the hour goes by quickly. Would recommend and I would definitely keep taking this class.

Pottery Making


Attended: Pottery Making

I knew nothing about pottery. This was my 1st class. It was an overview of everything. From centering clay, creating vessels, trimming, dipping to add color. I hope to learn more and take other classes. I wasn't great, but I was glad to have finally experienced ceramics.

Introduction to Digital Photography


Attended: Introduction to Digital Photography

Loved this class! It's amazing how complicated digital cameras and photography are today. I learned so much in this class but still have a lot to learn. The teacher was really chill and made learning and asking questions stress-free.
