Donate to HOBY

Since 1978, North Carolina has participated in the Hugh O’Brian Youth (HOBY) Leadership Program. Rising high school juniors from across our state have come together annually to learn valuable leadership development and personal development skills essential in helping students develop their true potential as leaders in our community.

Corporations, foundations, committed individuals and civic organizations provide 100% of the volunteer and financial backing for our HOBY seminar. We hope you will consider supporting the 2021 HOBY North Carolina East Leadership Seminar which will serve over 120 students from eastern North Carolina.
