Leadership for Service (L4S)

In 1998, HOBY’s Leadership for Service Program (L4S), a national community service program, was created exclusively for HOBY alumni to:

  • Raise the public's awareness of young people as a resource for community problem-solving.
  • Prepare young people to take on meaningful roles in community change initiatives.
  • Develop the capacity of individuals, organizations, and institutions to provide meaningful service and leadership opportunities for youth.

Through L4S, HOBY alumni are encouraged to continue logging all of their community service and volunteer experiences in the years following their participation in a Community Leadership Workshop (CLeW), a State Leadership Seminar (LS), the World Leadership Congress (WLC), and/or the Advanced Leadership Academy (ALA).  The L4S log can be printed and used as an appendix for college applications, scholarship applications, internship applications, and other opportunities where alumni are asked to demonstrate their lifelong commitment to service.
