OUR HISTORYHOBY began in NY State in the late 1970s. As the program expanded, the state split the program into multiple seminars to support the numerous communities in our region. HOBY NY East began in the late 80s servicing, approximately, the eastern portion of NY from as far south as the Bear Mountain Bridge north to the Canadian border. For over 30 years, we have worked to develop the next generation of leaders and to give back to the communities that support us through our community service initiatives.
OUR MISSIONTo inspire and develop our global community of youth and volunteers to a life dedicated to leadership, service and innovation.
OUR VISIONTo motivate and empower individuals to make a positive difference within our global society through understanding and action based on effective and compassionate leadership.
OUR VALUES - VOLUNTEERISM
Volunteerism is the heart and soul of our organization. We appreciate the myriad contributions of our volunteers, and recognize the power of thank you and of giving back. We seek to promote and encourage service among our stakeholders. We recognize and value the positive accomplishments that volunteers can achieve by working together. We believe that volunteers are positively impacted by our programs as much as the youth and communities we serve.
