Helping Youth & Families


Today’s children are tomorrow’s leaders, innovators, and hope for the future. While some children have many opportunities to shine in these areas, others don’t, because they are struggling to survive poverty, abuse, neglect, and families in crisis. Regardless of a person’s background, race, or religion, Boys Town believes that everyone deserves the chance to reach their full potential.

Our latest TV PSA titled: “Point/Counterpoint” is inspired by the notion that every “story” has two sides: We see and hear parents who are feeling angst over their depressed teen. They watch her retreat from them, spending evenings alone in her bedroom, not eating with them. The PSA includes scenes with her sitting alone, walking, petting her dog. We hear her thoughts juxtaposed with her parents’ comments – before learning that she’s found the strength to recover her former level of enthusiasm for life. She finds someone to “show her the first step…” which is – a support website from Boys Town.

In addition to this teen campaign, Boys Town is releasing a second campaign targeting parents and their free parenting content. Television host, Josh Temple, asks kids of all ages to answer your most burning parenting questions. The result is a humorous insight into the mind of a child in these clever:60/:30 and :15 second spots encouraging parents to visit to access our free resources.
