BENEFITING: Hugh Obrian Youth Foundation
HOBY is celebrating over 50 years as the country’s premier youth leadership development organization. Founded in 1958 by veteran actor Hugh O’Brian who portrayed TV’s Wyatt Earp, 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 believes students represent the future leaders of the world. By developing and understanding effective and compassionate leadership, we hope that today’s youth will realize their leadership potential and take action in their homes, schools, workplace, communities and the world. HOBY exposes its participants to experiential leadership training and development in an educational and entertaining environment that fosters participation and community building. The HOBY experience develops leadership from three perspectives: personal leadership, group leadership, and leadership for society, while focusing on individual student growth. HOBY Leadership Seminars focus on improving critical thinking skills, enhancing leadership skills, developing goal setting skills, realizing the importance of leadership, and active involvement in the community.
Please consider giving to an organization that is truly invested in the leaders of tomorrow.
HOBY’s Annual Leadership Seminar consists of opening and closing ceremonies, keynote speakers, panel sessions, hands-on skill building activities, and community service projects. HOBY provides all of these activities as well as housing, meals and transportation to all attendees. All of which rely on 100% financial backing from Maine communities and caring individuals such as yourself.
Your donation could also help provide a deserving student an opportunity to be part of this life changing seminar. To a rising star of a student whose family otherwise may not be able to afford to send their child on this life changing journey. Your contribution will result in supporting and developing the youth of the State of Maine.
