About Us

The Clarkston Community Center (CCC) is a non-profit 501(c)3, serving one of America’s most diverse communities. Formed in 1994, the CCC’s mission is to provide art, education, recreation and community building to Clarkston and Greater DeKalb County residents, both long-time Americans and newly arriving refugees.


The CCC programs are about improving the quality of life from young people to seniors and everyone in between. Our programs offer opportunities to learn, gain skills, discover new interests, meet neighbors, enjoy the visual and performing arts and participate in any of a broad spectrum of programs, activities and events.

In 2015, we served over 40,000 individuals with over 60,000 people passing through the building.


Only at the CCC will you find a contra dancers from Atlanta, drummers from Burundi, a steel pedal guitar player from Macon, a farmer from Bhutan, a lawyer from Somalia and a business owner from Ethiopia sitting side-by-side to watch a World Cup game or help a child with their homework. For the CCC, this is what life looks like.
