Leadership for Service

HOBY challenges all alumni to put their leadership skills into action through community service. This is our “Leadership for Service Challenge” where we ask students to commit to completing at least 100 hours of service to their communities during the year following their HOBY experience. The hours are logged on our website and recognition is given to those who meet the challenge.

Are you ready to meet the challenge?

Your community service project can be any altruistic service in which you donate your time and energy to improve your community and the lives of others. Be creative in finding volunteer activities that are fun and enjoyable, and also enhance the quality of life for those around you. Find out more about a network of organizations already serving the community that would welcome your help! Once you choose your project and begin your service, create your username and password and begin logging your hours.

HOBY encourages you to go beyond just doing community service to leading service projects. For example, you could coordinate a Community Leadership Workshop (CLeW) in your area.

Recognition and Rewards

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:

  • A personalized congratulatory letter from HOBY President & CEO Javier LaFianza
  • A confirmation letter from HOBY certifying your hours
  • A personalized certificate from HOBY declaring your accomplishment
  • A congratulatory letter from the President of the United States

*Awards are subject to change.
