General information

To attend seminars in the United States, a student must be chosen by their high school out of all students in that school's sophomore class. At the seminars, students participate in programs designed to enhance their leadership and teamwork skills. Students also meet and converse with leaders in their community in fields such as volunteerism, media, education, philanthropy, and politics, among others. They also break off into groups and discuss the day and their activities, as well as their life and feelings. They also participate in energizer cheers in between panels and in any free time they have. In late July, HOBY has a World Leadership Congress (WLC), which is hosted in a major US city. The WLC is attended by hundreds of HOBY students from all over the world. Since inception, 355,000 young people have attended HOBY programs.
