Our purpose is to teach you how to think, not what to think.

Leadership Seminars are designed to prepare our country’s high school sophomores to become effective, ethical leaders in their home, schools, workplace and community. Selected high school students from each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Canada, Mexico, Korea, Taiwan and Israel attend local weekend seminars annually.

Positive Outcomes:

"By encouraging leadership and educating teenagers about the vast world of opportunities before them, the Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership (HOBY) program is making a very important contribution to our nation's future"

- Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton
