BT O.N.E. Award Winners


BT O.N.E. is the Boys’ Town spirit where we enable our colleagues to take Ownership, to be Nurturing, and be Empowered.
This January, we wish to publicly recognize our pioneer BT O.N.E. award-winners: Isa and Jet!

“Isa’s attitude in service goes beyond his immediate scope of work and demonstrated one of Boys’ Town’s core values – Ownership. He contributed strategically and coordinated the inaugural Boys’ Town Charity Futsal, leading to the successful completion of the fundraising event.

His willingness to be stretched beyond his assigned role and seeing him in action and passion in his role have motivated many to do likewise. On many other occasions, he has also supported fellow colleagues in times of need. ”

“Jet is a good role model and displays a positive attitude in working with the residents, conducting his role professionally and diligently. While he could be firm in his daily duties, he also displays a caring role in working with the youth in need.

He meticulously prepares medication for the residents and ensures that they take their prescription on time. He is attentive to their needs and displays the ability to manage details.”
