BENEFITING: HUGH OBRIAN YOUTH LEADERSHIP
ORGANIZER: HUGH OBRIAN YOUTH LEADERSHIP
EVENT DATE: Jan 25, 2011
HOBY wishes to Lead with Love this Valentines Day and increase our outreach to at risk youth in our own communities that may be dreaming big, but have pockets too small. We believe they deserve the opportunity to join HOBY and increase not only their chances for success, but also their likelihood to give back in big ways-- And that is good for us all.
If you attended a HOBY seminar, you most likely have few words in your amazing vernacular to sum up the experience you had. If you were a parent of a HOBY ambassador, you were likely greeted with a HOBY hug after their OUTSTANDING (you hear this every second, huh?) weekend, blinking at their hyper speak and thinking…“What did HOBY do with my teenager?” You knew they were a great kid, but now they are really OUTSTANDING (again with the outstanding thing). If you are a volunteer, you are probably serving your twenty-something year in making this HOBY magic happen and deserve a standing O (for outstanding, of course).
If you don’t know HOBY and are now curious about this OUTSTANDING thing, then well…OUTSTANDING-- keep reading.
HOBY is a youth leadership organization with a 52 year track record of turning young believers into great doers and leaders. Each spring, sophomores from around the country are selected to attend life-changing weekend seminars in their state, run by over 4,000 dedicated volunteers. Students are given hands-on opportunities to gain leadership skills taught by the best. They attend workshops, speeches and panels comprised of current leaders in business, government and philanthropy, who engage students in non stop thinking and learning. Together, we develop young minds to think for themselves and then go out and DO!!
(And if that isn’t enough explanation of our awesomeness I urge you to visit out website www.hoby.org or find us in Facebook and read what our astonishing alumni are saying!)
We’d love 200 Donations of $26 for a goal of $5200!! Then, 13 Amazing kids will get to pack their bags and embark on the best weekend ever. So how bout it? Ready to change a life?
