  • Oglethorpe University (map)

JCI Atlanta has announced as US-backed partnership with HOBY-Georgia a, an organisation helping to develop leadership skills for rising Juniors and Seniors in High School.

At HOBY, high school sophomores build their leadership potential through an inspiring three- or four-day Leadership Seminar based on three leadership perspectives: Personal, Group, and Societal. As many as 300 “ambassadors” from high schools across the state or country gather at their local HOBY State Leadership Seminar between April and June to:

  • Experience life on a university campus, where HOBY Leadership Seminars are hosted

  • Interact with local community leaders—from CEOs to business owners to doctors to media experts—through panels, presentations, and group discussions about real-world issues

  • Participate in hands-on activities to explore and exercise leadership on personal and group levels

  • Form diverse relationships with adult professionals, college-age mentors, and high school students from across the state with diverse leadership styles and backgrounds

  • Conduct a community service project to put leadership-for-service skills into action

  • Open opportunities for internships, mentorship programs, and other HOBY Ambassadors Connect benefits

After each seminar, HOBY alumni are challenged to complete 100 hours of community service within the next year as a way to put their passion and newly built leadership skills into action.
