Described in these pages by Executive Director Val J. Peter are the four facets of Girls and Boys Town 21st Century Teaching Model-training, clinical consultation, evaluation, and administration. The Model, grounded in research and ever-evolving based on what we learn from our clinical work with children and families, stands on the principles of teaching skills, building healthy relationships, and empowering through self-government. Read how these principles, instilled by highly trained, professional Family-Teachers, offer each of our children hope, healing, and "the best opportunity to be a successful person." This book is designed for anyone committed to revolutionizing the way America cares for its troubled girls and boys.
