About Us

The Clarkston Community Center, a 501(c)3, serves one of America’s most diverse communities. Formed in 1994, the CCC 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.


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

In 2013, CCC served over 40,000 individuals with over 60,000 people passing through the building.


The Clarkston Community Center is a unique entity able to serve the mixed needs of a population comprised of every sort of person imaginable! Only at the CCC will you find a contra dancer from Atlanta, a drummer 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.
