Classes and Help

Our New Americans Centers located at Central Library, Pacoima, Junipero Serra, Pio Pico Koreatown, Benjamin Franklin, and Wilmington offer free help sessions and classes on a variety of topics during select hours. All sessions are free and open to everyone.

We will be adding more classes and help sessions, so regularly check the schedule for new events.

If you do not see a help session or class in the language you speak, please call us at 213-228-7390 and leave a message. Many partners provide multilingual services, including Chinese and Korean.


Who takes care of your family if something happens to you? Do you have a plan and the paperwork to secure your children’s future? Bet Tzedek can help you at one of their workshops. Available in English or Spanish.


Is your landlord trying to evict you? What steps can you take to secure your family residence? Eviction Defense Network or Basta can help. Sessions are in English and Spanish.
