Provider Description

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.

  • Tennis Program (Beginning)

    Reviewed by Beth M. on 4/21/2024
    The instructor was not only highly skilled but also incredibly patient and encouraging. From mastering basic strokes to refining my technique, each lesson was meticulously planned and tailored to my skill level. The small class size ensured personalized attention, allowing me to progress quickly. The facilities were top-notch, with well-maintained courts and ample practice space. I feel much more confident in my game now and can't wait to continue improving. I highly recommend this course to anyone looking to enhance their tennis skills in a supportive and professional environment.

    Interactive class. Remember to bring your mat for a portion of the class. Nice that it’s on a Saturday as parking is free
  • Barista Training for Beginners Part 2

    Anonymous review on 1/28/2024
    The instructor was a nice guy and he knows a lot about coffee and coffee machines. But after a brief instruction he spent the vast majority of time just chatting with one of the students about nothing related to coffee, only occasionally checking in on the students’ progress. That was literally the entire class. Just a bunch of us who didn’t know how to make latte art making blobs without a lot of help for four hours.
  • Barista Training for Beginners Part 1

    Reviewed by Mo A. on 1/22/2024
    I couldn't attend your course due to the lack of ADA compliance at your facility. Additionally, the instructor made derogatory statements about disabilities, suggesting that I must be able to walk to make coffee and implying that my hands should be functional. Unfortunately, he didn't apologize or make any efforts to accommodate my needs. The facility's lack of ADA compliance, coupled with obstacles like cars and chairs blocking the entry, indicates a failure to address previous legal concerns regarding ADA compliance. This non-compliance by the college is unacceptable.
