My name is Candace. I am currently a student at Georgia State University seeking a degree in Psychology. I have the privilege of being the mother of a joyous little girl. Prior to studying psychology I was a Early Childhood major and was Pre Kindergarten teacher in the city of Atlanta. My passion for children grows deeper than the classroom itself. I continuously sought out different ways to give back to my community with DeKalb Kids Project, Inc. being the best choice.
Our mission: To build projects for our youth of DeKalb to become better leaders!
Our Vision: To build a stronger DeKalb and sustain academic success by engaging students in positive relationships.

We need people who will devote time and energy towards our projects. To understand the aspects of DeKalb Kids and their needs. Those who will passionately desire to see change within those connected to our organization.
