2022 DSU Annual Appeal

This holiday season, please help us continue to bring critical resources to youth and families. Give generously to help us do even more for Duxbury’s young people. Donate Now!

Since opening our doors in 2007, DSU has played an integral role in the lives of Duxbury’s young people at nearly every stage in development; from elementary school through high school and beyond. Our continued work is to adapt and evolve to the ever changing needs of Duxbury students.

Help us do more to build confident and passionate global citizens like Carly, Robbie and Liv.

Duxbury's Youth Center

The Duxbury Student Union is a registered nonprofit organization in Duxbury, Massachusetts. Located  in the center of the school  campus in the historic Wright Building, the DSU is uniquely positioned to serve youth and families with our EEC certified After School Programs (funded by program enrollment fees) and mission-oriented programs funded by community donors and benefactors.

Although DSU operates independently from the Town and Schools, we strive to maintain strong partnerships with both; supporting their initiatives and augmenting resources and programming for the entire community.
 

The DSU After School Program is self-funded through program enrollment fees.
