CORE LEADERSHIP SKILLS
Much of the work at HOBY involves young people exploring and identifying their unique leadership skills. Every student is different, and there is no attempt to impart a predefined set of attributes onto HOBY participants. We stress self-knowledge, uniqueness, and authenticity, not conformity. Students learn to mobilize their own unique traits and are exposed to particular leadership principles that they can explore and incorporate in a fashion that is true to their own personality.
ABOUT HOBY WV
HOBY West Virginia was established over 40 years ago in March 1978. Our first Seminar was held at Jackson's Mill and since then we've grown to host 200 high school sophomores every year.
Our leadership programs are designed to prepare students to turn their ideas and goals into reality. Each program adheres to the five core HOBY values: Volunteerism, Integrity, Excellence, Diversity, and Community Partnership.
ALUMNI IN ACTION
HOBY West Virginia runs on 100% volunteer power. Most of whom are HOBY West Virginia alumni. Throughout the year the Seminar Planning Committee seeks partnerships with community organizations whose support allows for the execution of our program.
