Description

HOBY \ 'hobee \ n, adj (1958)

1: Youth leadership development organization that "provides lifelong leadership development opportunities that empower individuals to achieve their highest potential."
2: Of or relating to HOBY [a ~ Ambassador]

HOBY's mission is to inspire and develop our global community of youth and volunteers to a life dedicated to leadership, service and innovation.

Virginia held its first seminar in the spring of 1977 in Richmond, Virginia with 65 schools represented. Today, we have over 250 schools represented each year. In our 34 year history, VA HOBY has reached
over 6,000 sophomores from throughout the Commonwealth, many who continue to give back to the organization today.

In 1985, volunteers with the VA Seminar established Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership - Virginia Leadership Seminar, Inc. (VA HOBY), a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization governed by a Board of Directors of prominent business leaders,
educators, former VA HOBY Ambassadors, and members of various cooperating organizations.

The VA HOBY Seminar continues to be a model for other leadership programs, being recognized annually as an Outstanding State Seminar, Outstanding Corporate Board, and Outstanding CLEW by HOBY International.

As an affiliate of HOBY International, the Virginia Leadership Seminar, Inc. provides the following programs around the commonwealth:
· Annual Virginia Leadership Seminar
· The HOBY Alumni Chapter
· (CLEW) Community Leadership Education Workshops
