2021 DSU Annual Appeal

Dear Friend,

This holiday season, please consider a generous gift to Duxbury Student Union so that we may continue to bring critical resources to youth and families.

Your support will benefit our youth community because DSU is where:

Meet our friends and learn their stories from this past year…

DSU is a slam dunk for Grady!

When 8-year old Grady came to DSU during hybrid learning, he quickly discovered it is a place where new experiences are celebrated and everyone belongs. He conquered the computer, championed the backyard, and his confidence soared as a result! Grady found such success at DSU that when he invited his friends to experience this happiness, they said YES!

Your generous gift supports our real-life preparedness initiatives.

Michael finds his mentor

When Michael took advantage of the DSU’s Network How, Network Now event, he had no idea he would meet a career professional who would become a mentor; inspiring his passion for marketing and offer him a summer internship to explore the field and build relevant skills. During that event, he learned that DSU is a place that can bring together teens with mentors, sparking lifelong career interests for real world opportunities. Learn more about what we’re doing to prepare teens for college and beyond:  82DHS; HIREDuxbury; SAT Prep.

Your generous gift inspires global citizenship.

Kiley develops a passion for leadership and advocacy

When 14-year old high school freshman Kiley joined the Holocaust Symposium for Teens to learn more, she had no idea what to expect. Going into the experience, she knew she had a strong moral compass, but through her experiences she developed a passion for advocacy and leadership. She also gained 18 new friends who bonded over the course of the summer and now serves in various school roles as a high school freshman. Together they learned how history can help frame our futures to be better for all. To learn more about the Holocaust Symposium for Teens click here.

Students like Grady, Michael and Kiley are the heart of DSU.

Young people from Chandler School to Duxbury High School age know the DSU is where they feel connected, where they expand both academic and life skills, and where their families feel confident they will grow in character and courage.

In 2021 DSU staff and volunteers answered the call and offered enhanced vital resources to a community facing local, regional and global challenges. The work continues and we can use your help.

With your financial support we can do even more:
