For a prospective young adult member, joining Post 53 begins by expressing interest in membership during the final year of middle school (8th grade).

Current Post members participate in an annual Activities Fair at the middle school and they provide a range of information on Post membership.  Typically, interested young adults take a First Aid class either during the summer prior to their Freshman year or the first term once they are in Darien High School. To find out more information call Post 53 at (203) 655-8980 or e-mail

If you are in the incoming DHS class of 2024 and interested in participating in the spring or fall class of 2020 please send us your preliminary information by following this link:
