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 local business leaders, civic groups, volunteers, and HOBY alumni. There are no fees associated with attending a CLeW. If interested in planning a local CLeW, please contact your State CLeW Director.
To plan or to join a CLeW in your community, please contact your local HOBY affiliate seminar. You may also contact HOBY at email@example.com.
More than 4,000 committed HOBY volunteers plan and execute HOBY programs each year, serving both at the local HOBY affiliate level and on HOBY’s Board of Trustees. Due to the selfless efforts of volunteers and the contributions of generous donors, more than 9,000 students participate in HOBY programs annually.
