Get Involved


HOBY Vermont is always in the need of volunteers.  Volunteering for HOBY is one of the most rewarding experiences you will ever have. We have volunteers that have been involved with HOBY for less than a year and volunteers that have been involved for close to 20 years! They will all say the same thing: “HOBY is OUTSTANDING!”

Currently, HOBY Vermont is growing! We are trying to expand our program and take on more new, exciting things! We need motivated, willing, and able people to join us in volunteering for a great purpose.  Email to explore with us what might be the best opporuntity for you!
