photo:  boys totem townBoys Totem Town (BTT) is a residential program for up to 85 adolescent boys who have been adjudicated delinquent by the Juvenile Court.  The name, Boys Totem Town, evolved from the practice of turning every dead tree on the grounds into a totem pole.

David Ardoff, former director of the school program at BTT, states:  "There are constants that have remained through the years.  Boys still need guidance, health care, food, and shelter. We are still working with the same problems, but, hopefully, we are learning and using newer and better skills, which we can use in our day-to-day contact with our boys."
