HOBY’s mission is to inspire and develop our global community of youth and volunteers to a life dedicated to leadership, service and innovation.

Every year, we host a three day leadership seminar dedicated to teaching young leaders about themselves, their ability to lead, and how to lead for good in our global society - ending with a challenge to donate 100 hours of their time to their local and global communities.


Donations help make HOBY Minnesota happen year after year!

As a non-profit, we fundraise for our seminar every year.  We ask for any and all donations, as even the smallest amount helps! Specifically, we look to receive 100 $25 donations to help cover the cost of venue rental, speakers, service project supplies, and room and board for each ambassador. These donations are in addition to the fundraising events + efforts the corporate board leads year-round. Please consider donating $25 at the button below!

Empower, Lead, Excel

We won’t teach you how to be a leader, because you already are.

We believe in your abilities and want to work with you, for three days, to dive even deeper into your leadership abilities, to teach you how to work within a group to achieve common goals, and how to dream even bigger - making an impact in your local community + the world.

Not only will you have a blast + make friends that will last a lifetime,

  • You’ll leave a change maker; with the tools to make a difference in the world

  • You’ll become a part of a community of committed leaders + volunteers

  • You’ll be challenged to think for yourself and grow as a leader

  • You’ll learn about the world + hear from accomplished leaders from across the state/country.

Once your registered, you’ll receive an email with even more detail. You’ll also be contacted by your small group facilitator prior to seminar with key reminder.

HOBY isn’t just one life-changing weekend, it’s a community of alumni who are inspired to do more and do good.

Each year, the HOBY Minnesota Board of Directors + Seminar Leadership Team work to provide a 3-day seminar experience that challenges and empowers students to leverage their leadership abilities for greater good.
