The Madison Ave Soapbox Derby is proud to announce that we have selected Decatur Student Center as our 2021 beneficiary. The Decatur Student Center is committed to providing meaningful support that allows all students to flourish in school and in life.
The Decatur Student Center provides wrap-around services beyond the scope of the school counseling program. The DSC began at the high school but has become a K-12 initiative to address the needs of students, pre-K through 12th. Students can receive individual and small group counseling for social-emotional concerns, as well as support for academics and post-secondary planning. Programming needs are determined through surveys, data review, and student voice.
The DSC provides services through CSD therapists and contracts with outside therapists and organizations, as well as through collaborative programs with Georgia State University’s Community Mental Health Program.
