Youth Motivational Speaker Scott Backovich

Since 2010, HOBY California has been proud to sponsor Scott Backovich as the featured keynote speaker at our California seminars.

As a youth motivational speaker, Scott has dedicated his life to doing one thing: inspiring teens through speaking at their level. He has been featured on TV and radio as a student leadership expert and has presented to over 100,000 teens from coast to coast around North America.

Witty by nature, caring at heart: for Scott, this is merely the tip of the iceberg. Scott’s quirky yet powerful style and message speak to students on their own level, helping them to understand the true potential they hold.

Scott is featured at student leadership conferences, conventions, and school assemblies around the United States and Canada. Each summer, Scott returns to HOBY to speak to new groups of sophomores about leadership, life and service.

Here is a message from Scott about his own HOBY experience:

“It is rare to find a student leadership conference that cares so deeply about the experience of their teens both during and after the event itself.  CA HOBY Seminars don’t simply aim to equip students with valuable tools for leadership. More importantly, HOBY empowers students to live a life filled with purpose, passion, and service. It has been an absolute blessing to work with HOBY for the past few years, and I’m excited for many more in the future. Simply put, HOBY is OUTSTANDING!”

HOBY is proud to recommend Scott as a keynote speaker for any leadership conference, school assembly, or educational event. To learn more about Scott, visit his website at
