Helping the next generation grow, succeed, and thrive

Explore our youth programs

The Clarkston Community Center has always been dedicated to improving the live's of the youth living in the Clarkston area. In addition to our standard weekly classes, we also offer two expansive programs that help young people learn and better themselves.

Youth development program

Our after-school middle and high school program was the result of an ongoing need to address many problems faced by the young adults in their homes, schools, and social communities. By joining the after-school program, these students become confident around the issues they face on a daily basis like youth violence, cultural diversity, health inequities, and obstacles to educational attainment.

This program is being sponsored by the DeKalb County Youth Services and the Clarkston Community Center and is open to students ages 11-18 years of age. If you know someone who may benefit, please reach out to Justine Okello the Director of Programs at the Clarkston Community Center for registration or any form of inquiry. | 404-508-1050


Summer camp

The Clarkston STEAM-Plus Summer Camp (STEAM standing for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) welcomes children between the ages of 11-18.

The fun and creative atmosphere of camp also builds stronger English language skills for those who are new to this country and bolsters self-confidence for participants, especially for girls and young women. The campers explore and create eco-art, assemblage art, painting, drama, dance, and gardening. They also tackle core subjects like science, mathematics, social studies and English. To expand technology skills, the camp also features 3D printing, computer programming, and architectural design using CAD computer programs. This summer of 2018, the camp is between June 4th and July 27th and the youths will get to work with a Turkish artist who will be teaching sculpting using recycled plastics bottles among others. To register your child please contact Justine Okello, the Director of programs at the community center or call 404-508-1050 

Breakfast and lunch are provided for each day of camp.
