Connecting recent grads with incoming 9th graders.

Our signature 82DHS event engages recent Duxbury High School graduates with the entire 8th grade, providing panel discussions on academics, extra-curricular activities, work and volunteer life, self-care, and inclusion and activism. 

Graduates volunteer, sharing their expertise, with two days of focused training followed by an interactive, “gamified” experience for 8th graders to learn, ask questions and have a ton of fun.

High school has become increasingly complex and it is good to turn down the volume and hear directly from graduates on how they conquered high school life. They “spill the tea”, with no topic off limits and 8th graders appreciate the authentic and personal reflections.
