Point/Counterpoint and Parents
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.
No Past Campaigns Available
Our campaign entitled “Parenting Isn’t Easy” features TV host, Josh Temple, interacting with kids. The result is a humorous insight into the mind of a child in these :60/:30 and :15 second spots encouraging parents to visit www.Boystown.org/parenting to access free resources.
Our latest TV PSA titled: “Me” is inspired by the idea that every person has the strength within them to overcome life’s challenges. For some, that’s difficult to believe when nothing seems to be going right in their life. This PSA includes scenes with a teen sitting alone at lunch, ignored by their peers and feeling overwhelmed with life. We hear the teen’s thoughts filled with angst – before learning that they’ve found the strength to recover their former level of enthusiasm for life. The teen finds someone to “show her the first step…” which is www.YourLifeYourVoice.com – a support website from Boys Town.
