The 2017 HOBY-NYE Leadership Seminar is Fri., June 2 - Sun. June 4th at SUNY Oneonta!

For over 30 years, the New York East Hugh O'Brian Youth leadership seminar (HOBY NYE) has worked diligently
at inspiring and empowering young people to make a difference in our community.

What is HOBY?

It is our mission to inspire and develop our global community of youth and volunteers to a life dedicated to leadership, service and innovation. The HOBY New York East seminar, held annually in New York's Capital Region since 1986, attracts over 200 students from more than 150 high schools across eastern New York State.

Get Involved!

Every HOBY New York East leadership seminar, CLEW, service project, and social event is planned and staffed entirely by volunteers who want to make a difference in the lives of young people. Our success is built on the hard work and dedication of passionate volunteers. Find out how you can help!
