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.

06/30/16: Art at the Center and STEAM Summer Camp

DSCN4962The last day of Session 2 was a whirlwind — our final performance was a great success! With presentations about what they’ve learned, a song from group 1, a live music video from group 2, and a dance from group 4, we say farewell to many of the campers. Now, we have a week break before camp restarts for Session 3 on July 11! This Session has been a blast and has gone by so fast. We surely will miss our campers, but look forward to the next round.

Spots are still available for the July Summer Camp sessions at $150/week/child, or $75/week/child with a medicare or medicaid card. This cost covers breakfast, lunch, and the rest of the 8 am – 2 pm day on Monday through Thursday. Session 3 (Art at the Center) is from July 11 – July 14 and Session 4 (STEAM Camp) is from July 18 – July 28th.

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!soccer in the streets 1servicejuris 2 servicejuris 1
