HOBY Michigan is Outstanding!

Founded in 1958, HOBY’s mission is to inspire and develop our global community of youth and volunteers to a life dedicated to leadership, service and innovation. The Michigan affiliate has been operative since 1984.

HOBY's flagship program is a three-day seminar open to high school sophomores from any public, private or home school in the state. HOBY provides students unique leadership training, service-learning and motivation-building experiences. HOBY also provides adults with opportunities to make a significant impact on the lives of youth by volunteering. Annually, approximately 50 volunteers—many of whom are alumni themselves—dedicate their time and skills to helping young leaders realize their own.
