I have always believed the future of work (let alone the world) would be brighter if emotional intelligence and leadership skills were taught early/earlier in life, and HOBY does just that.
Every year, we host an annual 4 day seminar for high school sophomores. In these 4 days, these kids begin to identify their values, strengths and leadership philosophy, they give to their communities through service projects, they learn about echo chambers, empathy, curiostiy, they check their privilege, and they practice being vulnerable with one another. These kids walk out with more skills around how to think, not what to think.
Students pay nothing to attend. In terms of costs, it's just $250 to send a kid to HOBY and, literally, change their life. So I'm asking that you donate what you can. Even $5 makes a difference.
If you have questions, if you want to talk to someone about how HOBY affected their life, if you want to hear more about the programming and what makes it so special...let me know and I'll try to not talk your ear off.
Thanks in advance for your support!
