Description of Organization
Boys’ Town is a charity started by the Brothers of St. Gabriel and provides residential care, street outreach, fostering, and community and school-based programmes for families, children, and youth-in-need. We help babies and youth who come from disadvantaged families and may have faced hardship due to various reasons such as financial struggles, family issues, emotional trauma, and abuse. Through our services and programmes, we equip them with the skills they need to become responsible and contributing members of society

Our organization’s mission: To help children and youth-in-need become socially integrated, responsible and contributing members of society.

Our key programmes and services are:

Residential Services
• Group Home
• Shelter
• Therapeutic Group Home
Youth Outreach
Safe and Strong Family – Reunification (SSF-R)
Clinical Intervention Centre
Boys’ Town Adventure Centre


Intended use of funds through the YFC 2019 programme
On an annual basis, we have helped and reached out to around 500 children and youth. While some of our programmes and services are fully or partially funded, there are also some which are not funded at all. The funds raised through the YFC 2019 programme will go towards supporting our programmes and to offset some of our operational costs.


Engaging and involving the YFC participants
We will invite the team(s) to our organisation and share with them what we do at Boys’ Town. We will gladly engage them on a regular basis in terms of providing support and suggestions to these young volunteers on good fundraising practices.
