HOBY exists to motivate and empower individuals to make a positive difference within our society through understanding and action based on effective and compassionate leadership. To accomplish this, we strive to inspire and develop our community of youth and volunteers to a life dedicated to leadership, service and innovation.
The 2020 HOBY Los Angeles Leadership Seminar is a three-day leadership development program which will bring together approximately 150 students from across the county. Local schools send representatives they feel are leaders or have leadership potential. Planned and executed completely by volunteers, the seminar is a motivational, hands-on 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.
Our seminar is made possible by the generous support of people like you. Please consider making a donation to support HOBY LA.
This year, the seminar will take place at Cal Poly Pomona on Jun 19th – 21st. (See Map at the bottom of this page). Ambassadors for this year’s seminar and their families can click the following link for FAQs and current Packing List.
