About BoysTown Employment Service

BoysTown helps disadvantaged children and young people aged to 25 years connect with the community.
We provide help and reassurance to those experiencing life challenges that include: physical and emotional abuse, alcohol and drug abuse, homelessness, low literacy, long-term unemployment and mental illness. We recognise that each person is unique, with their own needs. To help address this, we provide a wide range of services.


We offer one-on-one counselling to thousands of young people and their families via our Kids Helpline and Parentline telephone and online help services. Young people can also obtain work, gain valuable work experience, training, learn life skills and at the same time, receive counselling support to deal with their individual life challenges.


BoysTown provides a number of services to young people aged 15 to 25 years. Services range from work preparation and training, work opportunities with BoysTown's own enterprises or other work placements, access to BoysTown job services as well as help learning more about parenting and other social integration skills.


BoysTown provides paid, real work opportunities for disadvantaged young people. Employed directly through BoysTown's own commercial enterprises, young people are supervised by qualified and experienced staff and supported by youth workers. Our enterprises include: construction, fencing, landscaping and property maintenance.
