The Boys Town Mission
Our mission began nearly a century ago when orphaned, abandoned and abused children were welcomed into a home with generous amounts of love, attention, patience and understanding. Through the decades, Boys Town grew and evolved to meet the ever-changing needs of America’s youth and families.
Today, Boys Town is a national leader in the care and treatment of children. The Boys Town Education Model® is an extension of our organization’s philosophy of care and is used in education settings to create safer and more effective learning environments for students.
Built and refined on decades of research and experience, the Education Model provides a comprehensive approach to addressing the emotional, behavioral and social needs of students and our Expedition Literacy program provides a comprehensive approach to addressing students learning and literacy deficits. Implemented in every corner of the country, at every grade level, the Education Model is an intervention strategy that focuses on managing behaviors, building relationships and teaching socials skills. Its concrete strategies work with every type of student, in every type of environment. The results…
- Reduced office referrals and disruptive behaviors
- Increased academic engagement and instruction time
- Increased on-task behaviors
- Increased job satisfaction for school staff
