Volunteer at Open House

Senior Project Host
Open to both alumni and parents of alumni
Since the 1960s, the Senior Project program has given our seniors the opportunity to experience the "real world" in a field they have interest in pursuing in college or just want to learn more about. The seniors spend the month of May on Senior Project, and then return to school on a date in June to present to teachers, parents, peers, and guests on what they learned from their experience. Fill out the Volunteer form linked below if you are interested in hosting a student for May 2020.
Host a Regional Alumni Gathering
Gather YOUR region's local DCDS alumni for a fun get-together! Regional hosts pick the location and help us get alumni there. DCDS will foot the bill for food, create the communication outreach, and send a spirit box of DCDS goodies for the party! Fill out the Volunteer form if you would like to plan the gathering
This opportunity is open to alumni living outside of the state of Michigan. Please note that DCDS is able to purchase food for this event, but not alcohol.
Throughout the year, there are many other events and programs providing the opportunity to connect with students and other alumni whether it be for career advice, networking, or just social reasons. Look for our emails or visit the Events tab on this page to see what is available.
Support Our Community
As one of our Alumni, you play an important role in ensuring that the students who follow your graduating year, have the same opportunities and experiences that were provided during your time at DCDS. By making a gift, of any size to our Annual Fund, alumni can collectively support and ensure that students are given opportunities for character-building, critical thinking challenges, and self-discovery. Our Annual Fund supports
- Programming such as writing workshops with professional authors and moviemakers, guest speakers and performers
- Engaging and educational class field trips
- Purchasing state-of-art athletic and art equipment
- Improving and repairing of facilities and grounds
- Assisting families with financial needs
Every gift is valued and meaningful. Please consider continuing our legacy to graduate students who are incredible and impressive additions to our alumni community.
Our Earning 4 Learning parent organization has partnered EA graphics to offer a year-round spirit wear store. A portion of proceeds from each sale comes back to E4L and directly benefits the DCDS community.
Earning 4 Learning also offers other ways to use your regular shopping habits and purchasing power to give back to the school. To learn more visit their web page.
