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.

After School Program

Our after-school middle and high school program was the result of an ongoing need to address many problems faced by 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 Eric Williams the Youth Coordinator at the Clarkston Community Center for registration or any form of inquiry.
