Hugh O'Brian Leadership Academy (HOBY)

Founded in 1958, by New Trier Graduate Hugh O'Brian, HOBY's mission is to inspire and develop our global community of youth and volunteers to a life dedicated to leadership, service and innovation. HOBY programs are conducted annually throughout the United States, serving local and international high school students. HOBY programs provide students selected by their schools to participate in unique leadership training, service-learning and motivation-building experiences - See more at: http://hoby.org/ . Sophomore students may apply for a position each fall and the school will select two representatives and a number of alternates to attend the seminar in the summer.
