Leading Everyday

Unfortunately HOBY Washington only occurs once a year for an OUTSTANDING group of high school sophomores.  The organization holds a four day seminar, aimed at inspiring young leaders to learn how to think, rather than what to think.  Yet, there’s much that can be done outside of those four days which promote leadership, and community service.  This portion of the website highlights additional activities that HOBY Alumni, and young leaders can engage in.

World Leadership Congress (WLC)

HOBY’s annual international youth leadership event, The World Leadership Congress (WLC), is a dynamic leadership program that brings together students (or “ambassadors” as we like to call them here at HOBY) from the U.S. and abroad.

This group of over 400 ambassadors comprised of U.S. high school students and international students from all four corners of the globe convene for a week-long, life-changing, educational and leadership skills building program.

Leadership for Service (L4S)

HOBY’s national community leadership program which challenges each and every HOBY alumni to complete 100 hours of community service within a year of attending their state or regional seminar.  Click here for more information.

International Programs

HOBY’s global community of youth and volunteers are making a difference around the world.

Today, HOBY programs are empowering young people to be a positive force in their communities in Canada, China, Iraq, South Korea, Turkey and the United Kingdom. Students throughout Africa will soon have the opportunity to develop their leadership skills after launching a pilot program in Togo in 2015.
