Inspiring, Educational, Compassionate, Energizing, Enthusiastic, Motivating, Transforming, Long-Lasting, and Life-Changing

These are some of the words that students, schools, parents, alumni, volunteers and supporters use to describe the Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership (HOBY) Conference. Founded in 1958, 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 programs are conducted annually throughout the United States, serving local and international high school students.

HOBY programs provide youth selected by their schools to participate in unique leadership training, service-learning and motivation-building experiences. Today, over 375,000 proud alumni make HOBY stronger than ever. HOBY alumni are leaders in their schools and communities, throughout the United States and the world, making a difference for others through service.

The Home Representative Club, who has sponsored this program for over 25 years, is excited to announce that three outstanding sophomores were selected for this year's HOBY Leadership Award. Brooke Eigenheer, Steven Moran and Emma Pfeffer were selected to represent their respective schools, family, community and the Home Representative Club at the leadership retreat paid for by the Home Representative Club of Collinsville. This leadership retreat was held at the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond the first weekend of June. Each student had the opportunity to participate in hands-on leadership activities, meet leaders of the state of Oklahoma and explore his or her own personal leadership skills while learning how to lead others and make a positive impact in their community. These three students were also able to participate in a hands on community service project during their weekend stay and were encouraged to develop critical thinking skills. Each attendee of this conference were given the opportunity to visit with and ask questions of today's leaders in hopes of helping them emerge as tomorrow's leaders.

If you are an incoming sophomore for the Fall 2016 school year and you are interested in this prestigious award please contact the Sophomore Guidance Counselor by October 1, 2016.

What Leaders are saying about HOBY:

Ted Turner, Chairman, Turner Broadcasting Systems:

“You know, we business people like to say we’re driven by the bottom line. The real bottom line is the future, and we owe it to our youth to prepare them for that. Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership (HOBY) does just that. By promoting leadership, HOBY is building a corps of young people who will be prepared to meet the challenges facing future generations.”

Muhammad Ali, Olympic Gold Medalist and Heavyweight Boxing Champion:

"In this world, success comes to those with confidence and faith in themselves. Hugh O’Brian’s youth organization is the GREATEST in developing that confidence in outstanding 10th graders selected annually to represent over 13,500 public and private high schools at one of HOBY’s leadership seminars. What an outstanding role model for our future!”

Colin L. Powell, Former United States Secretary of State:

"The mission of America’s Promise is to equip the next generation of Americans with the character and competence they need to be successful adults. Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership (HOBY) is one of our staunch allies in this crusade... HOBY is encouraging each of the thousands of high school sophomores who attend these leadership seminars to volunteer at least a hundred hours a year to a community service project. The HOBY commitment to America’s Promise will produce at least 1,400,000 volunteer service hours a year.”
