Start:ME is a free, intensive 14-week business accelerator for small businesses (businesses with 1-4 employees) that provides the business training, mentorship support and loan fund capital needed to develop their businesses. The program is delivered by Emory University’s Goizueta Business School in partnership with Friends of Refugees, Clarkston Community Center, and Partnership for Community Action.
Since 2013, Start:ME Clarkston has helped 50+ small business owners — mechanics, artists / makers, bakers, caterers, tutors, and more — start or grow their business. The program is recruiting for its 2017 program and is now accepting applications from promising small business owners who live or operate businesses in Clarkston or neighboring areas. Applications are due on November 14th, 2016.

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!
