The DeKalb Office of Youth Services has partnered with Soccer in the Streets which recently opened a StationSoccer at Kensington MARTA. Soccer in the Streets and its partners are building and programming fields in and around MARTA transit stations. The goal is to build “A League of Stations” whereby kids and adults can represent their own station community and play other station teams by using the public transit system. Through this new innovative place making project, our goal is to connect communities and help cultivate healthy lifestyles through
sport and transit.



The Youth Entrepreneurship Program (Y.E.P.) is a summer program held at MARTA’s Kensington and Indian Creek Stations. The Youth Entrepreneurship Program was designed to help curb the increase in youth selling water on the entrance/exit ramps of DeKalb interstates. Participants learn about entrepreneurship, mathematics, communication, and technology, which can assist them in potentially developing a trade, hobby, start-up company, or purchasing an existing business or franchise.



The DeKalb County Summer Voucher program which is administered by the DeKalb Office of Youth Services in partnership with the DeKalb Community Development Department. The program provides low-income families with a voucher valued at $250 to assist children and youth with attendance at an approved participating summer camp. DeKalb County youth and children who participate in this program are able to engage in educational and recreational activities, which helped build self-esteem, and promote mental and physical health.
