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.

The teacher, Israel Lopez, was awesome. He really knew how to explain the planning necessary to help an unartistic buffoon like me draw any character imaginable. Can't wait to take another class with him

My 10 year old son took this class. He very much enjoyed it and I could see that he learned a lot in in only 5 sessions. I was impressed the instructor was always early and seemed very focused on making the most of the 1 and 1/2 sessions.

Face Painting

Professor Rose was brilliant. She took the time to walk around the class, coach, and make sure everyone actually got to see her work up close. She gave tips not only in regards to painting faces but about the business side of things as well. She takes time to answer emails if you have questions, you can see the quality of her work on Instagram, DNE Art. She is really fast and does beautiful work. She teaches a variety of face masks and other face pieces that are easy to execute. The class is definitely worth the investment. If they open an intermediate and advanced class I would immediately sign up. She also taught a henna class I would recommend, as well as a sugar skull class. Sad the class ended.

Though overall I enjoyed the class, I felt the instructor was not a particularly great listener and often gave answers that were not germane to the questions asked. Things often felt chaotic, and because she did not lead the class in an orderly or assertive manner, it was difficult to know what was expected. Also, there were often unnecessary intrusions by the instructor's husband.

What a joke: teacher was a no-show, didn’t bother to tell any of us, I drove an hour to get there, we all waited around and couldn’t even get in the room. All of us wrote emails and left messages, couldn’t reach a soul. Big waste of time, totally unprofessional, the alleged “teacher” should be dumped. I’ve never signed up for a “coursehorse” class, this was first and last time. Beware.

QuickBooks Fundamentals I Certification

Attended: QuickBooks Fundamentals I Certification


This was a great introductory QuickBooks class. Educationally would give 5 stars. The teacher was also excellent. The 3 stars is due to the conditions of the room it was literally 90 degrees with zero to no air flow about 3 people of our class walked out as the heat was too much to handle.
