Boys Town New York Youth Tour College Campus

Education is one of the most effective agents to ​transform lives and instill promise, motivation and hope. This is why Boys Town New York seeks to immerse our youth in programs and opportunities that help highlight how far a commitment to school - and themselves - can take them, as four special boys recently discovered on a trip to Washington DC.

For Boys Town New York youth, the trip was a rare chance to leave the confines of New York City. On their campus tour of storied Howard University, the experience was a chance for the boys to envision life as a college student and see the power of education as a means to better oneself. Boys Town youth, Henry, said he could picture himself at Howard University in a couple of years following the tour, while another youth, Andrew, began contemplating pledging an academic fraternity. More than just a vow, Boys Town sees these proclamations as obligations towards a better life and a personal promise that they will be the ones to break a cycle of poverty and displacement.
