You are the protagonists!  The work we do at the Darien Club only complements the immeasurable efforts you make to raise your sons as men of character.


At Darien, our mentors can accomplish more when we work closely with the parents of each student to address their son’s particular needs.  In addition to meeting with each student every month, mentors are regularly available to meet with their mentees’ parents at Darien to discuss how Darien can best serve them and their son.

Activities for Parents


We encourage the dads to join in the activities. Many of you play a key role to help organize, support.
