Who Attends:
Each spring, 10,000 high school sophomores from across the country join one of 70 State Leadership Seminars to recognize their leadership talents and apply them to become effective, ethical leaders in their home, school, workplace and community.

My son loved it. He came away with ideas about what he would like to do, and ways to get it done. I am so pleased that he has had an opportunity to participate in HOBY. HOBY is a really great organization that fulfills a terrific need. Particularly now when the Internet has empowered so many to start effective and sustainable grass-roots movements, the HOBY program is positioned to help kids make their ideas effective. I am so pleased with the impact HOBY has had on my son.
