Life Skills Center

The LACC Life Skills Center

The Life Skills Center (LSC) is part of LACC’s student support services on campus. The mission of the LSC is to provide life skills and mental/emotional wellness education. This is accomplished through providing workshops, trainings, podcasts, and mentoring to LACC students and in-service training for faculty, staff, and students.

Our goal is to enable LACC students to adapt positively to personal, family, and environmental challenges as well as pressures that can interfere with the ability to succeed academically and personally. Learning to master these challenges will enhance a student’s psychological, interpersonal, educational, and career development while at LACC and long after leaving the college.
