Welcome to the Clarkston Community Center
Welcome to the Clarkston Community Center, located in the heart of one of America’s most diverse and international communities. We celebrate and support this diversity and honor and recognize the richness and strengths of many different cultures can help build a sound and progressive city.
We are a gathering place for art, education, recreation and community building for Clarkston and Greater DeKalb County residents: long-time Georgians, transplanted Americans, established internationals and newly arriving refugees. In 2015, we served over 40,000 people with a wide variety of programs, classes, sports, arts, recreation and special events.
06/20/16: Art at the Center and STEAM Summer Camp
Today marks the beginning of Session 2 of Summer Camp at the Center and continues until July 1st. Our children are learning STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) curriculum, including how to conceptualize shapes on a computer and 3D printing. The past two weeks of Session 1 have been fantastic. The kids had a great time cleaning the community, learning to garden and eat healthy, coding on computers, watching performances by special guests, choreographing music videos, and spending time with friends.
Spots are still open for $150/week/child, or $75/week/child with a medicaid or medicare card. Breakfast and lunch are included in the 8am – 2pm day, along with tons of fun and learning with friends!
Session 2 (STEAM Camp): June 20 – July 1
Session 3 (Art at the Center): July 11 – July 15
Session 4 (STEAM Camp): July 18 – July 29
06/18/16: World Refugee Celebration and ServiceJuris
From 10 am to 2 pm, we celebrated Georgia World Refugee Day with Soccer in the Streets on our beautiful soccer field. The event attracted support from all over the community and resulted in a great turn out.
Additionally, we had the amazing support of the ServiceJuris team. They helped us renovate the center by repainting our benches and lines on the ground, creating new tables, mulching the garden areas, and fixing our porch. We cannot give enough thanks to the volunteers who helped make our center look brand new again!
