The L4S Challenge

HOBY inspires all our alumni to put their leadership skills into action through community service.  Our L4S Challenge is for alumni to complete at least 100 hours of service in their communities in the two years following their HOBY experience.  The hours are logged on our secure L4S website or App, and recognition is given to those who meet our challenge. 

HOBY alumni in their junior and senior years of high school are eligible for the PVSA and HOBY’s Awards Packet if they complete the L4S Challenge.

Congratulations to the 2016 and 2017 HOBY Alumni who completed our 100+ Hours Challenge! A complete list of winners can be found here.


Awards and Recognition 

The President’s Volunteer Service Award.  There are three levels of the President’s Volunteer Service Award given based on the number of qualified hours served and logged in the L4S system:

    ♦  Bronze:  100-174 hours in one year

    ♦  Silver:  175 to 249 hours in one year

    ♦  Gold:  250+ hours in one year


To qualify for this award and HOBY’s Awards Packet, alumni have until July 1st (in the two years following their HOBY program) to perform and log their service hours.  For example:

  • 2015 HOBY alumni have their junior year of high school to complete the challenge and log their hours by July 1, 2016.
  • 2015 HOBY alumni also have a second opportunity to earn the awards.  They have their senior year of high school to complete the challenge and log their hours by July 1, 2017. 

In addition, HOBY will recognize any alumnus who has served and logged at least 4,000 hours over their lifetime with the prestigious President’s Call to Service Award.
