Creating new and positive futures

By: yourtown 19 Dec 2014 BoysTown, Blog
The young people we work with come from tough backgrounds, it is not always an easy road but someone has to give them a chance.


We make a real difference by taking the time to work with young people step by step, addressing each individual challenge to help them create a new and positive future.

Jason* came to BoysTown two and half years ago and has participated in various programs. He was a troubled young man facing many personal challenges.

This July he started in our Community Catering Program and everything clicked. He found a strong sense of purpose and turned up 100% of the time. Jason became known as ‘the Foreman’, a nickname which has become a badge of honour.

In September he participated in a BoysTown job blitz, cold calling employers looking for work. He landed a casual job to start the next day. Three months on he is still employed and his boss is keen to offer him a fulltime job when he gets his driver’s licence.
Jason comes back to visit us sometimes, and he beams with pride at his new life.
At BoysTown we never give up. We persevere and stand by young people like Jason as they change their lives and achieve their dreams.

You can help us continue this important work by supporting the BoysTown Art Union or making a one off donation.
