The CCC provides unique experiences, educational resources, and valuable tools that foster community while celebrating cultural diversity. 

Programs for All Ages

The Clarkston Community Center has a full range of community programs including an after-school program and a thriving summer camp. Serving over 60,000 individuals per year, CCC uses art, dance, music and culture to connect, support, and learn. From English as a Second Language classes and Ecstatic Dance Atlanta dance groups to Tabala martial arts and Vietnamese games, the CCC has unique programs and events that keep our vibrant community connected. The CCC strongly supports resources that promote health and wellness in the community, and our seniors have access to such programs as Tai Chi, Senior Technology Courses, Monthly Art Programs and much more. We also offer connections to exciting jobs programs and recreation opportunities for all.

CCC Media is committed to empowering our community through elevating their voices and stories.


Using an array of mediums, we hope to establish this platform for our stories to be seen, heard and embraced.


Through amplifying our community's voices, we aspire to create unifying and positive change in our community.


One of these platforms is through, "Clarkston Talks," a podcast developed by our Leaders of Tomorrow students. This podcast is where they address key issues in their community while searching for solutions.


We invite you to join us in these conversations, and reflect with us in our journey.
