​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​At Boys Town, we believe that every child, regardless of circumstance, deserves the opportunity to succeed. We also recognize that every child is an individual with unique needs. That’s why, over many decades, we have developed a distinctive, research-based approach to achieving our vision that has proven successful for tens of thousands of children and families. This approach, ​​which we call the Boys Town Model®, involves five steps:

  1. Teach children and ​families life-changing skills so they can achieve true change in their lives.
  2. Help children and families build healthy relationships that will last, and provide them the support and foundation to grow.
  3. Empower children and families to make good decisions and succeed on their own.
  4. Care for children in a family-style environment — after all, families are the building blocks of our lives.
  5. Support children and families in practicing a faith to give them stability and guidance ​in​ times of difficulty and need.
