Nine decades of finding better ways to help at-risk youth
has convinced us that teenagers thrive on responsibility.
Here are four cornerstones of the philosophy that sets Boys
Republic apart from other youth-serving agencies.
At Boys Republic, we make every effort to avoid relieving
youth of the responsibility and burden of making decisions
and managing their own lives. Require them to be accountable
for their behavior, their attitudes and even their mistakes
and they, in turn, will act responsibly. Set clear expectations
and provide relevant learning opportunities troubled
teens will develop the skills and outlook to become contributing,
self-reliant members of our communities.
The Group Is the Target of Change
At Boys Republic, student government and daily group counseling
provide the forum within which troubled youth may experience
the challenges and rewards responsible living. Conventional
values flourish in a setting where students can openly examine
their behavior and have an active voice in determining the
norms by which they live.
Earning Self-Esteem Through Personal
Self-esteem is earned one accomplishment at a time. Through
instruction and practical application, Boys Republic youth
follow a structured program of learning opportunities in academics,
work experience, student government and group interaction.
Each personal accomplishment is an important step earned toward
responsible adulthood and self-reliance.
Nothing Without Labor
Boys Republics motto is Nothing Without Labor.
Our goal is to teach disadvantaged teenagers good work habits,
which are essential for successful employment. Punctuality,
cooperativeness with others, diligence, care for tools and
equipment, and ability to take direction from a supervisor
are all habits that may be transferred from Boys Republic
to any job in the community.
