Seminar Information

Leadership Seminar Curriculum

The curriculum for this Leadership Seminar is based on HOBY’s vision to motivate and empower individuals to make a positive difference within our global society. HOBY believes students like you represent the future leaders of the world – leaders in business, education, government or any field you choose – because YOU are someone who will make a difference. By developing and understanding effective and compassionate leadership, we hope you will be able to realize your leadership potential, and take action in your homes, schools, workplace, communities and the world.


Your HOBY experience will help you develop leadership from three perspectives:

  1. Personal Leadership

  2. Group Leadership; and

  3. Leadership for Society.


We will focus on your individual growth in order for your leadership to make a better world and a better society for yourself and others. Everyone at HOBY believes in your ability to be a leader and affect the future for all of us. So, stand out and be outstanding! Show us who you are and what you can do. HOBY is your open door to a life of leadership and service. We can’t wait to learn what potential you will unlock through HOBY.


HOBY’s Selection Process


Each September, HOBY Sophomore Registration Kits are sent to over 22,000 public, private and charter high schools in the United States. All tenth graders are eligible for selection to attend one of the three- or four-day weekend seminars held in their area each spring. A sophomore leader may be selected by each school and is certified by the principal. HOBY’s seminars focus on the theme “Empower. Lead. Excel.” while encouraging the young leaders toward responsible citizenship, including community service and volunteerism. Learn more about ambassador (high school sophomore) registration.
