ATTEND THE WORLD LEADERSHIP CONGRESS (WLC)
HOBY’s annual international youth leadership event, The World Leadership Congress (WLC), is a dynamic leadership program that brings together students (or “ambassadors” as we like to call them here at HOBY) from the U.S. and abroad. This group of over 400 ambassadors comprised of U.S. high school students and international students from all four corners of the globe convene for a week-long, life-changing, educational and leadership skills building program.
The 2017 WLC will be held July 22-29, at Loyola University in Chicago. To learn more and to register, click here!

LEADERSHIP FOR SERVICE (L4S)
Leadership for Service (L4S), a national community service program, is changing their lives and enhancing the quality of life in their communities. L4S is specifically designed to raise the public’s awareness of young people as a resource for community problem-solving, prepare young people to take on meaningful roles in community problem-solving, and develop the capacity of individuals, organizations, and institutions to provide meaningful service and leadership opportunities for youth.
HOBY achieves these goals by challenging each ambassador who attends a local HOBY Leadership Seminar to complete 100 hours of community service. To help them successfully meet that challenge, HOBY has designed innovative website and certification process utilizing state-of-the-art interactive technology.
The key to the certification program is the interactive web site: www.hoby.org, which has been completely redesigned to be used to reach out to, communicate with, motivate, and certify service hours. On the web site, students register their service projects and record their hours. HOBY certifies their service hours, recognizes them on the completion of their commitments and rewards their efforts.
Alumni completing 100 hours or more of community service within one year of their program attendance are recognized and rewarded for their service.
You will receive the following awards*:
- Certificate of Recognition from HOBY.
- Recommendation letter from HOBY’s Executive Director and CEO addressed to College Admissions Officer verifying your service hours.
- The President’s Volunteer Service Award and congratulatory letters from the President of the United States and the Chair and Honorary Co-Chairs of the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation.
*Awards are subject to change.
