The Alumni Association is the best way to stay involved in OUTSTANDING service projects, volunteer opportunities, and, of course, HOBY!
The HOBY New York East Alumni Association consists of all ambassadors who have participated in an annual 3-day Leadership Seminar or a local 1-day Community Leadership Workshop (CLeW). The Alumni Association is administered by an Executive Board, which consists of officers elected from the ranks of the alumni membership. They work in conjunction with Area Club leaders to develop, plan, and carry out alumni community service and social events. The Area Clubs consist of alumni from multiple counties working in their communities to promote the ideals of leadership and volunteering. Each member of the Alumni Association is encouraged to perform at least 100 hours of community service and to log those hours with HOBY International. The Area Club Presidents and Executive Board are mentored by the Alumni Advisor to ensure compliance with national regulations and risk management policies.
The New York East Alumni Association strives to develop relationships with local charities and service organizations. Strong connections have been made with such worthy organizations as the Muscular Dystrophy Association, The Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York, The New York Special Olympics, American Cancer Society Relays for Life, and the Ronald McDonald House Charities. The HOBY New York East Alumni Association encourages all of its members to have a positive impact in their communities by carrying on a program of volunteer service and community involvement. The members of the Alumni Association have raised tens of thousands of dollars and performed thousands of hours of volunteer work to benefit these worthy organizations and the people which they assist.
