Founded in 1958, HOBY’s mission is to inspire and develop our global community of youth and volunteers to a life dedicated to leadership, service, and innovation. HOBY programs are conducted annually throughout the United States, serving local and international high school students. HOBY provides students, for whom most are selected by their schools, the opportunity to participate in unique leadership training, service-learning, and motivation-building experiences, beginning a lifelong dedication to improving the lives of others.
HOBY State Leadership Seminars are for sophomore students who want to develop their leadership talents and become stronger leaders in their communities. Through engaging and interactive speakers, workshops, fun activities, and discussions, HOBY’s dynamic 3-4 day leadership training explores leadership from three perspectives: personal, group, and societal.
Only three students will be selected from Lamar Academy and each student is responsible for paying the fee to the program. The first spot is discounted at $225 and the remaining two spots are at full price of $395. The application will have a small essay to determine who will compete for the discounted price. The essay is required.
