This year's seminar will host 100 students, June 13-15, at University of Las Vegas Nevada. Students are instructed in individual leadership, group dynamics, goal setting, planning and leadership in society. They are mentored by local leaders in business, education, and civic affairs. After the Seminar, our goal is for students to walk away with improved critical thinking skills, practical leadership skills, and with a better understanding of the importance of leadership in solving problems and improving lives in their schools and communities.

Our Seminar utilizes Q&A sessions, small group discussions, interactive activities, hands-on community service activities. All aspects of the HOBY Leadership Seminar are geared to encourage students to see leadership as a life-goal worth pursuing and to encourage them to return home and lead in their local community.

HOBY emphasizes Leadership for Service. We motivate students to act now to improve their communities and organize their peers to join them. Each seminar has hands-on community service projects and students are given information about an array of organizations and causes. All students are challenged to perform 100 hours of community service within a year of the seminar and log their projects on our tracking website.

HOBY also wants to motivate students to do things no one else has done. To see a need in their school and community, think it through, discuss solutions, then rally others to join them and use their leadership skills to plan and execute solutions.

HOBY has no social or political agenda. We do not tell our students what to think. Our goal is to teach them how to think, plan and work with other leaders, and then motivate them to act for the betterment of their schools, communities and beyond.

We operate with a 100% volunteer staff, many of whom are HOBY Alumni who want to create a positive, life-changing HOBY experience for others.
