Welcome HOBY Parents!

HOBY is a premier youth leadership development program. If your school has nominated your son or daughter to attend the leadership seminar in your state, congratulations! The fact that your child was invited to HOBY implies that they possess the leadership potential and academic preparedness consistently found in the most promising high school sophomores in the country. During the seminar, your child will have the opportunity to interact with other sophomores from around your state and region and to discuss a number of pressing issues with our panelists and keynote speakers.

As the nation’s foremost youth leadership development organization, with more than 335,000 alumni, Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership welcomes you. You are invited to learn more about HOBY by exploring the pages that describe HOBY and its various programs.
