The 2017 HOBY Washington Leadership Seminar will be held June 15th-18th, at the Washington State University campus in Pullman, WA.

Registration is currently open!

A Better Tomorrow starts with Better Leaders.

Those Leaders are Students Right Now.

Through your support, HOBY WA will provide a unique opportunity for a Washington High School sophomore to become a HOBY Ambassador.

This is the one and only way for a student to become a HOBY Ambassador.  A life-long exposure to wonderful learning and leadership experiences begins at a HOBY four-day seminar, attended by student leaders from all over Washington.

As a 501(c)3 non-profit and non-governmental agency, HOBY Washington relies on the generosity of its donors to keep its inspiring and effective programs going strong.

Ambassador Testimonials:

“HOBY does not teach you how to lead, it empowers you to be a leader. It was the first place where I felt that I can truly make a difference in this world. I wish that every high school student could share this life-changing experience with me.”

Megan, 2015:  Sedro-Wooley High School

“HOBY Washington is a fun learning experience.  We cheer, communicate, sometimes cry, and end up with a new confidence, perspective, and friendships.  It might be only four days, but it provides young leaders the tools and enthusiasm to go back to their communities and serve passionately.”

Kimiko, 2014:  Shadle Park High School

“Everyone experiences the desire to contribute to something bigger.  Before HOBY I was aware of that longing within me, but I wasn’t always confident in how to put it into action.  HOBY instills a hope for humanity that a veil of pop culture lies and cookie-cutter societal standards had covered before.”

Veronia, 2013:  Blaine High School

“I went to HOBY in 2012, and since the end of our, HOBY has stayed with me.  If you are looking at going to HOBY, then the only advice I can give you is to GO!  HOBY gives you a chance to step outside of your shell, make new friends, learn new things, and get PUMPED!!  At HOBY you make lifelong friendships, and gain memories that will last even longer.  In a word, HOBY is OUTSTANDING!”

Venna, 2012:  Blaine High School
