Once you attend any HOBY program, either in the U.S. or abroad, you are part of the HOBY alumni network and can participate in many opportunities open to HOBY alumni. These include Leadership for Service, where alumni can earn the Presidential Service Award; Academic All-Stars, where alumni can wear a special cord at graduation; and many other opportunities and special programs available only to HOBY alumni.
HOBY’s Leadership for Service Program (L4S), a national community service program, was created exclusively for HOBY alumni to:
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, the World Leadership Congress (WLC), and other International HOBY programs. 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.

Who Attends: - As a HOBY alumnus, you become part of a large international network of Ambassadors who are all part of the HOBY family and dedicated to a life of service. This network has been invaluable to many alumni as they enroll in college, look for career advice, move to a new city, or just want to interact and make new friends with a similar set of values and dedication to service. HOBY also has many formal programs available after participation in a CLeW, a State Seminar or the World Leadership Congress. These include mentorships, social events, and community service opportunities through HOBY partners and fellow alumni.
From Parents: - I never thought there would be such a large network of HOBY alumni all willing to lend a hand and help me in so many ways after I graduated high school. HOBY Ambassadors are all willing to support each other, and it is a great group to be part of.
Outcomes: - Alumni who participate in one or more of HOBY’s Alumini Network programs:
Piece of the Pathway: - The path HOBY has created for a young person to discover and develop their leadership skills is a tremendous opportunity that extends well beyond his or her high school years. HOBY’s Pathway to Leadership offers the opportunity to put leadership skills into action while leading a life of service. It can provide lifelong friendships, mentorship programs, internships, scholarships, new connections, social activities, and contacts around the world. HOBY alumni continue to benefit from their HOBY experience through Ambassadors Connect, because at HOBY, you become part of something bigger.
