Live-In Family Teachers

Boys Town

Boys Town has been changing the way America cares for children

Provides direct care for at-risk youth in a safe and caring family style living environment. Guides and counsels youth on appropriate skills and behaviors and provides youth with moral, spiritual and educational development needed for future success. In a career as Family-Teachers, part of giving youth a second chance is exposing them to new experiences. Youth come to the Boys Town Family Home Program for a variety of reasons – family issues, abuse, neglect, abandonment, involvement in the juvenile justice system. You come in by presenting them with opportunities in education and school involvement, giving them their first happy Thanksgiving or teaching them how faith can help them heal. We strive to give Boys Town Kids the fulfilling lives they deserve. We are currently interviewing married couples that may be interested in a future position at any of our sites.
