Director Q & A

Q & A with the Executive Director – Brandon Riley

Why Boys & Girls Club

It all began with my wife Jennifer – a former member of the East DeKalb Club. She has told me numerous stories of how the Club molded her into the individual she is today.

Who Influenced Me

When I was growing up, my parents were my biggest supporters and they instilled in me a strong work ethic that I’ve carried with me.

Advice for our Youth

Have pride in how far you have come and have faith in how far you can go.

Our Impact in the Community

Mrs. Durden, the founder and former director, built the East DeKalb Club because of her love for the community. With that, the parents have genuinely invested in and shown loyalty for the Club.

What Makes Our Club Special

East DeKalb is not like any other Club. The community built this Club and, with its support, East DeKalb has continued to be a critical resource for the Lithonia/Stone Mountain area.
