​​​​It's no secret that teens today are dealing with anxiety, stress and many other strong emotions. Sometimes they struggle to find healthy ways to handle all life throws at them. The Boys Town National Hotline® wants them to know there's a safe place just a call away.

That's why we're excited to partner with, Jocelyn, a BMG recording artist from Omaha, NE, for the “Love Yourself Tour" at schools across the country.

Jocelyn writes songs she hopes will bring positivity and empowerment to those that listen. “There's so much darkness in the world and I want my music to give someone a reason to smile," the 22-year-old says. It was her song “Love Letter"  that caught the attention of the Boys Town National Hotline as a potential partner opportunity. Now, they've teamed up to bring a message of hope and encouragement to high school students.

It all kicks off at Millard South High School, where Jocelyn graduated. She's been working with students there to do a week of positivity at a time when many may be struggling getting back into a routine after winter break. Each day has a theme with prizes and giveaways, leading up to a concert by Jocelyn for the students to promote the Hotline.

Partnering with Jocelyn is a great way to get our information directly into schools in a positive way. We're excited to see the number of students we can reach out to with the message of they are not alone and we're here to listen.

The Boys Town National Hotline is available 24/7 for kids and parents. There are four ways to reach out for help:

  1. Call 800-448-3000
  2. Text VOICE to 20120
  3. Email hotline@boystown.org
  4. Chat online
