DHS Students are Leaders!

A small group of DeKalb County young people has been tapped to demonstrate a simple, profound point: Teens, when supported and encouraged, can be a powerful force for good!  

The Dekko Foundation has made a pilot program to nurture teens as they learn how to identify a community problem.  Then the Dekko Foundation will stand behind them as they learn to use their developing skills, knowledge and character to improve the situation.  

The Dekko Foundation believes young people will benefit because they will learn that, by giving of their personal time, talent, and treasure, they can change their community.  

Adutls will benefit too because they will understand the strengths that young people bring to the table.  

When the group is ready, we'll support them as they work with their peers to make a positive change in the community!
