Community Based Outreach (CBO)

Community Based Outreach offers noncredit personal enrichment and professional development classes.  Our goal is to provide a wide range of programs to meet community needs and interests.  We aim to promote lifelong learning through courses aimed at personal enrichment, professional development, skill development and recreational enjoyment.  

Come explore, create and learn through our courses that touch on cooking, dancing, computers, fitness, photography, and much more. View our currently available classes!
