The NC West HOBY Leadership Seminar is a 3-day program for approximately 120 rising high school juniors to be held June 9-11, 2016 at Wake Forest University. HOBY Ambassadors will have an opportunity to develop their critical thinking skills, learn about their personal leadership styles, and form an appreciation for community service. They attend panel sessions featuring prominent speakers from businesses, media, and educational communities. They participate in leadership development workshops and activities. HOBY Ambassadors also participate in a community service project and learn how they can lead in service in their own communities. As a result of their experiences, the high school Ambassadors return to their schools and communities eager to make a difference and share what they have learned.
To make this happen, we need facilitators to help lead these high school students and assist with small group time during the seminar. All of the material will be prepared ahead of time by our planning committee, but we need committed adult volunteers for the entire weekend (Thursday evening - Sunday afternoon). We also need short term volunteers to help for a few hours throughout the weekend (registration, service project, essay grading, financial activity).
