Knowledge from HOBY Resonates with Student
HOBY stands for Hugh O'Brian Youth and is a leadership camp that empowers young leaders in communities to start service projects to better the lives of all in the world. HOBY’s mission is to inspire and develop our global community of youth and volunteers to a life dedicated to leadership, service, and innovation.
Savio Junior, Will Whitaker attended the Texas Capital Area HOBY Leadership program, which included a collection of student ambassadors from different schools in the Austin area. Together, the students learned more about what it means to be a leader in our community. Savio's Guidance Counselor, Dr. Ken Kohutek, presented the idea to Will Whitaker to represent Savio. Will accepted the opportunity as a valuable experience and committed to attend.
“The most valuable thing I took away from HOBY is that I can change the world and help out my community no matter how small my action in the community is. This is important for the people in high school these days because we are the world's next generation and we need good leaders who are willing to help out our community in any way to make the world a better place for future generations. I had a great time at HOBY. If you are selected to go to HOBY, make the most of it and participate in all activities, because the friends and the network you meet, will stay with you for a very long time.”
For over five decades, Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership (HOBY) program has inspired young people to make a difference and become catalysts for positive change in their home, school, workplace, and community. HOBY has a long and impressive history of successfully motivating youth and volunteers into outstanding leaders.
