BENEFITING: California Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership
ORGANIZER: California Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership
I attended a Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership seminar as a high school sophomore in Ohio in 2005. As a HOBY attendee, I met students my age who were passionate, driven, and inspiring and heard from community leaders, such as a judge who told us, "The hardest part of my job is convincing people to not commit another crime." Though the seminar lasted only four days, it left a positive impression on my 16-year-old self.
Twelve years later and 2321 miles away, I'm volunteering for HOBY for the eighth time! The HOBY NorCal experience is invaluable to attendees and provides high school sophomores with opportunities to meet like-minded leaders from across Northern California. This year, we're holding our seminar June 9-11 at Sacramento State University. I'm excited to help bring the HOBY experience to over 100 high school sophomores, coming from Monterey, Mount Shasta, and places in between!
