BoysTown Ltd became a registered company in 2002. The organisation's heritage dates back to the BoysTown residential institution in Beaudesert, which existed between 1961 and 2001. BoysTown runs services for children, young people and families, including the national Kids Helpline. It also delivers employment, training and counselling services in Queensland, South Australia, New South Wales, Western Australia and the Northern Territory. In 2016, the organisation was renamed yourtown.
