Community Based Outreach (CBO)

Formerly Known as "Community Education"

Community classes are offered in addition to John Wood Community College's instructional program. 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. 

Community courses are designed to meet the not-for-credit, continuing education needs of individuals in the Tri-Cities area. 

Come explore, create, and learn through our courses that touch on cooking, quilting, driving, dancing, computers, fitness, art, home improvement, photography, and many more. To see a list of classes click here.
