Classes that are the same or are similar to those currently offered will not be considered. Please review the current recreation guide, this is a good indication of the types of classes the Community Services Department offers, including locations, times, dates, and prices. Submit a resume and the class proposal packet including class description, days, fees, etc. to the South Pasadena Community Services Department, Attn: Tony Villalobos, 815 Mission Street, South Pasadena, CA 91030.
