Volunteer for Central PA HOBY
“I don’t know what your destiny will be, but one thing I do know—the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who have sought and found how to serve.” – Albert Schweitzer
Volunteers are critical to the success of HOBY’s programs. In fact, every year, more than 4,000 men and women throughout the country commit their time, energy and talents to planning and executing HOBY’s programs – Community Leadership Workshops, Leadership Seminars, the World Leadership Congress, alumni activities and more. Central Pennsylvania utilizes more than 100 volunteers annually. You can make a difference by contributing your expertise and talents to Central PA HOBY.
Volunteers make a significant impact on the lives of HOBY participants, while also having an opportunity to reevaluate their own life goals and objectives, share their experiences, and have fun! Due to the selfless efforts of these special volunteers, more than 375,000 students have participated in HOBY programs since 1958.
Volunteers come from all backgrounds and experiences to work together towards realizing HOBY’s vision. HOBY volunteers are keynote speakers and guest panelists who challenge students’ ideas about leadership; they are group facilitators who guide participants through their experience; they are advocates who engage local communities and companies to help fund the participants’ program costs; they are recruiters who share the HOBY story and encourage schools to get involved; and they are professionals who serve on the boards and program committees of HOBY state corporations and provide guidance on program planning, marketing, finances and more. With volunteers aged 17 to over 80, HOBY seeks out energetic and driven individuals who want to make a difference, motivate young people and serve their communities.
