Meeting the needs of adults who enroll community college with weak academic, economic, and family resources is one of the most prominent problems in higher education today. Research on the employment outcomes of a college education in the United States has primarily focused on four-year degrees, yet over 40% of college students attend a community college. In California, over two thirds of all college students attend community college California possesses a large economy that is unique from the rest of the U.S., and its skilled labor force depends heavily on training from community colleges (Pham, et al., 2019). The current research deals with the following topics: purposes of adult community colleges; issues in community adult education; deference's between adults and younger learners and community service programs.
