2015 World Leadership Congress

Since 1968, HOBY’s WORLD LEADERSHIP CONGRESS (WLC) has been bringing students together from across the globe to discover their potential as the next generation of leaders. Upon completing a State Leadership Seminar, U.S. high school rising juniors have the opportunity to advance to HOBY’s next level of leadership programs. The WLC is open to international students ages 15 to 17. Each year, more than 400 students representing up to 20 countries attend this unique week-long international program comprised of keynote presentations, speakers’ panels, interactive workshops, field trips, and community service projects. The curriculum is based on the Social Change Model of Leadership and develops leadership from four perspectives: Personal Leadership, Group Leadership, Leadership for Society, and Global Leadership. Students emerge from the WLC as more mature individuals, cognizant of the world around them, and ready to make meaningful contributions to society.

HOBY’s College Aid Planning program will help make your college dream a reality.

The total amount of student loan debt owed as a country is over $1.2 Trillion; larger than the total amount of credit card debt and auto loans. Two of the main reasons families accrue so much college debt are 1) the inability to prepare/save for college; and 2) difficulty understanding the complicated financial aid process.

HOBY’s CAP program provides assistance to families and Ambassadors through the aid process. We will work you through the financial aid web, ensuring the necessary forms are completed in a timely and accurate manner.

The participants return to their home sites and resume their responsibilities with renewed enthusiasm and vision, and further train their site’s volunteers.
