Spring CLeWs Scheduled for Areas 1, 3, and 5!

The Spring CLeW (Community Leadership Workshop) season is already upon us, and we’re excited to introduce OUTSTANDING high school freshmen around eastern New York State to HOBY!  Our annual Area 3 CLeW will be held Saturday, March 1st at Shaker Junior High School in Latham, NY, followed by an Area 1 CLeW on Saturday, March 22nd at SS Seward Institute in Florida, NY and an Area 5 CLeW on April 26th at Ballston Spa Middle School in Ballston Spa, NY.

The Community Leadership Workshop (CLEW) is HOBY’s introductory one-day leadership program for high school freshmen. A typical CLeW is six to ten hours long, with 50-100 freshmen participants, and focuses on leadership as a discipline to be explored and learned.

HOBY CLeW students interact with local community leaders, participate in group activities, and conduct community service projects. CLeWs are organized, developed, and implemented by HOBY alumni in conjunction with HOBY volunteers, local business leaders, and civic groups.

Are you a high school freshman who is interested in signing up to attend a CLeW?  Are you a HOBY alumnus, HOBY volunteer, or community member who is considering planning a CLeW for high school students in your community?  Contact Terrance McNally at chair@hobynye.org to learn more.

Volunteering at the Food Bank Farm – Voorheesville (Area 3) – Sunday, August 19th 12:00pm – 3:00pm

Hey HOBY! Were you in one of the 3 lucky sections that had the opportunity to volunteer at the Regional Food Bank Farm during seminar and have been anxiously awaiting another opportunity to weed carrots? Were you in one of the other sections who have only dreamed of such a treat?? It makes no difference – come on out to the Regional Food Bank Farm in Voorheesville on August 19th from 12:00pm – 3:00pm! Take advantage of the beautiful summer weather (hey… it can’t be much worse than the mud, rain, and cold of seminar weekend, right???) and make a big difference! Even with the bad weather during seminar we had A LOT of fun – you might even hear some new cheers!!

Be sure to wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty – preferably old jeans and work boots or old sneakers. We may be spending a significant portion of the time outdoors, so bring sunscreen / water bottles / etc. as needed.
