Leadership for Service

Leadership for Service (L4S) is HOBY’s national community service program, encouraging every young person to make a difference in their community through service.  By engaging in community service, young leaders can develop a further understanding of leadership and create a positive change in their home towns.  Young leaders who participate in L4S help spread awareness that each individual can have an impact, and that every act of service is significant.  Additionally, by participating in service events these young leaders develop a greater sense of awareness, and enhance their problem solving abilities.


Students should register their hours of service through the HOBY International website (Click Here), and certify their progress.  By completing 100 hours of community service within a year of their regional or state seminar, they are recognized and awarded with the following:

-Certificate of Recognition from HOBY International

-Recommendation letter from HOBY International’s CEO addressed to your College Admissions Officer verifying your service hours

-The President’s Volunteer Service Award and congratulatory letters from the President of the United States and the Chair and Honorary Co-Chairs of the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation.

*Awards are subject to change.
