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.

Sewing Made Easy

Attended: Sewing Made Easy


the course was really useful and well organized. The teacher, Ashley Trutanich, was amazing, both as a professional and a human being. She was very clear in explaining everything and always ready to help us, answering all our questions and showing us things as many times as we needed. The only downside was the duration. 2 hours didn't feel enough, 3 would have been perfect. I shared this thought with the other attendants and they agreed. When we moved to practice what Ashley was teaching us, we found ourselves in a rush. So basically we wanted more ^^

Sewing Made Easy was a great class. I have some experience with quilting, yet the class presented and reinforced basic sewing skills like basting, running stitch, and backstitch. I learned new stitches for hemming and mending. So the class strengthened and expanded my basic skills. Ashley was excellent about checking in with us to see where we were in terms of pace and if we needed to see something again. The class supplied sewing machines and I was impressed with how a person could show up and really get a good start--and also make a pillow in two classes! That was amazing. Every student had a lovely finished pillow at the end of the last class. Now I'm working on my own pillow project that is more complicated and Sewing Made Easy serves as a source of inspiration.

Great class. Just the refresher I needed. The instructor was great and met everyone where they were in their sewing journey. Highly recommended whether you are just starting out or just needed a reminder of sewing fundamentals.

Attended: Apartment Management: Part I


It was great to be in a class setting with other people that shared an interest in Apartment Management. I was only able to attend part 1 of the course where, I received a lot of great examples of documents for background checks, tenant rejection letters, and so forth. The instructor was easygoing, knowledgeable, and open to questions!

I’d give it one star because we didn’t paint once. He taught us how to draw and color, which is not what I signed up for.
