About Boys Town
Boys Town believes today, as our founder did 100 years ago, that every child deserves a future, every family deserves to stay together and every community deserves to thrive. And we believe that all of these things should be achievable without regard to race, religion or background.
So, for the young man dodging gunfire on the streets just to get to school, the family torn apart by substance abuse and the community crumbling from neglect and social disorder, Boys Town offers hope. But we offer hope as more than just an abstract concept; we make it tangible through programs and solutions that are grounded in our deep experience and supported by our decades of research. We invite you to join us.
We have grown to become a national organization that reaches communities from coast to coast, and our scope has expanded to include in-home family counseling, health care and programs to rebuild at-risk schools. That means we offer opportunities to live in a variety of locales across the country while working with those in greatest need of compassionate, effective assistance. With your help, we will continue our mission into our second century of service and beyond.
“There are no bad... boys. There is only bad environment, bad training, bad example, bad thinking.”
