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.

I enjoyed the course, it was taught at an easy-to-follow pace and I thought the instructor, Ron Amie, was through and knowledgeable. I would recommend Quickbooks 2 and Course Horse.

Rose's class is great, she packs a lot of good techniques into the class and makes a point to give each student individual attention. There aren't any handouts, so you have to make sure to take notes and pictures.

The class was way more than the description. Rose sent us out with knowledge and skills of several new designs every week. In addition she REALLY taught us the secrets of starting our own business. I did this course for fun but now I’m interested in learning more and will take her intermediate class soon.

Not enough one on one with the teacher , She focused too much time on the business aspect of it as oppose to showing us more painting techniques .

The original post mentioned Spanish /English the instructor barely spoke English and it was learn as you saw vs. actually learning technique and form. There was a TA or maybe someone who had experience in the class that spoke Spanish but the instructor seemed annoyed by her connection with some of us. Very disappointed.
