                 Project


Inter-professional collaboration to promote
children and YOUTH mental well-being

About Our Milieu Project




The importance of children and youth mental well-being have become more prominent in the recent years.

At Boys' Town, we recognise the need to teach and support these vulnerable groups. Since the beginning, in-line with our vision, we have created and provided programmes that are all-encompassing in meeting the needs of children and youth.

Hence, we are launching "Our Milieu Project": a series of programmes involving inter-professional collaboration of experts in children and youth work age 7-24 where we aim to address their holistic needs.
