Los Angeles Seminar

The HOBY Los Angeles Leadership Seminar is a leadership development program which brings together students from across the county. The seminar is a motivational program that includes critical thinking, mentoring, panel discussions, goal-setting, and project planning activities. Students learn individual leadership styles, group dynamics, and leadership in society–all with a focus on Leadership for Service to their communities. Students are challenged to make a difference now in their schools and communities, and challenged to perform 100 hours of service within the 12 months following their seminar, beginning with four hours of service during the seminar itself.

The 2024 HOBY Los Angeles Seminar will be held at California State University, Long Beach beginning the morning (7:00 – 8:00 AM) of Friday, June 21, and running through the afternoon of Sunday, June 23.
