Description
Boys Town:

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.

Unfortunately, even with the many young lives we save and change, there are still far too many boys and girls who could benefit from our help but don’t know how to find it. We hope you can help increase awareness to those youth (and their families) who need the unique assistance our Hotline services provide. 

We have grown to become a national organization that reaches communities from coast to coast, and our scope has expanded to include in-home family counseling, health care and programs to rebuild at-risk schools.

One of our services, provided free of charge, is the Boys Town National Hotline®, a 24/7 crisis hotline for kids and parents. It provides a website specifically for teenagers called www.YourLifeYourVoice.org .  For 30 years, the Boys Town National Hotline® and its extended services have been answering the call when children and parents need immediate, professional, and compassionate assistance, answering 150,000 calls, emails, texts, and chats a year.

Point/Counterpoint and Parents Point/Counterpoint and Parents

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 www.YourLifeYourVoice.com – a support website from Boys Town.

 

Parents

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 http://www.Boystown.org/parenting to access our free resources
