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.
Since 2009, we have held an annual one-day workshop at Gheens Academy for approximately 60 freshman/sophomore students. Each workshop has included guest speakers (Darrell Griffith, Madeline Abramson, Robbie Valentine, Angie Fenton to name a few), a service project and interactive sessions. Students may apply to attend the workshop by submitting an application and a short essay. A teacher's signature is also required. Applications are usually available in November.
In addition to the workshop, students may apply to represent Male as an Ambassador at the State Leadership Conference at Transylvania University in June. This is a separate application from the workshop and it is usually due in September.
We have a Facebook page called Louisville Male High School-HOBY Youth Leadership. Become a fan today!
