Life-Changing Education for Children and Families
Education can change lives. Boys Town has recognized this truth for more than a century with our continuing commitment to quality education for all children. At Boys Town, we teach beyond the material in textbooks. We teach life skills, social skills, accountability, appropriate behavior and study skills. Our goal is to provide kids with the best education possible so they can move forward and lead productive lives.
The teaching and training that takes place in the Village of Boys Town is used to develop and pioneer new systems and tools that can be carried forward and used in schools across the country through our education training services. The map below shows the number of schools and where they are located that benefit from our National Training Program today.
LIFT Together with Boys Town is a multi-component, community-based prevention initiative that uses Boys Town’s family- and school-based programs to generate community-wide impact. We collaborate to implement the prevention model that best fits the community and its needs and programs as well as generate strategies for sustainability.
Well-Managed Schools provides a structured approach to school-wide behavior and social management that creates more positive and calmer classrooms. This program gives educators practical, real-world skills that can be used to manage behavior, build relationships and teach social skills. Well-Managed Schools has been successfully integrated into thousands of schools in almost every state positively impacting tens of thousands of students, teachers and staff.
