leadership for all
HOBY’s flagship program, the State Leadership Seminar is designed to help high school sophomores to recognize their leadership talents and apply them to become effective, ethical leaders in their home, school, workplace and community. Students explore their own personal leadership skills while learning how to lead others and make a positive impact in their community.

catch the spirit
HOBY's vision is "To motivate and empower individuals to make a positive difference within our global society through understanding and action, based on effective and compassionate leadership." HOBY's success is the direct result of its 4,000 national volunteers who plan and execute its programs.
reaching the world
Started in 1958 by legendary actor Hugh O'Brian, the HOBY program nationally reaches out to every public and private high school as well as conducting HOBY-style programs internationally including programs in Argentina, Bolivia, Canada, China, Korea, Taiwan, Israel, and Iraq.
All across the country, volunteers, schools, students and alumni have caught the HOBY spirit. Thousands of men and women have participated or volunteered in Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership (HOBY) programs, making it America's premier youth leadership development program.
