HOBY’s World Leadership Congress (WLC) is designed to allow students to discover their own personal leadership potential while becoming responsible and responsive global citizens. Participating students have the opportunity to engage with thought-leaders in a wide variety of fields. They also participate in hands-on leadership learning and activities in addition to service opportunities throughout the week.
After the week long program, students leave inspired and motivated to articulate and accomplish their goals as well as make positive changes in their local and global community. The National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) has placed the WLC on its National Advisory List of Student Contests and Activities for 2012-2013.
Of course, none of it would be possible without HOBY’s OUTSTANDING and dedicated team of volunteers that bring their magic, selflessness and pure energy with them for the entire length of the program.
