If you've still got questions regarding Ambassadors Connect or any of HOBY's programs, our Associate Director of Development, Eugene Durham, would be happy to hear from you.
Once you attend any HOBY program, either in the U.S. or abroad, you are part of the HOBY alumni network and can participate in many opportunities open to HOBY alumni. These include Leadership for Service, where alumni can earn the Presidential Service Award; Academic All-Stars, where alumni can wear a special cord at graduation; and many other opportunities and special programs available only to HOBY alumni.
Leadership for Service (L4S)
HOBY’s Leadership for Service Program (L4S), a national community service program, was created exclusively for HOBY alumni to:
- Raise the public's awareness of young people as a resource for community problem-solving
- Prepare young people who have attended HOBY to take on meaningful roles in community improvement initiatives
- Develop and foster the capacity of individuals, organizations, and institutions to provide meaningful service and leadership opportunities for youth.
Through L4S, HOBY alumni are encouraged to continue logging all of their community service and volunteer experiences in the years following their participation in a Community Leadership Workshop (CLeW), a State Leadership Seminar, the World Leadership Congress (WLC), and other International HOBY programs. The L4S log can be printed and used as an appendix for college applications, scholarship applications, internship applications, and other opportunities where alumni are asked to demonstrate their lifelong commitment to service.

A HOBY Academic All-Star needs to be a HOBY alumnus who has completed the 12th grade or has earned their college degree by the spring of 2020 with a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher. After approval of an online application, Academic All-Stars will receive a certificate and official HOBY honor cord to wear at graduation. In addition, each participant will be included on the Academic All-Stars Honor Roll.
All-Stars must have a cumulative weighted 3.5+ GPA on a 4.0 scale. (If schools do not use a 4.0 scale, guidance counselors will need to convert grades accordingly. If the school does not weigh GPAs, cumulative unweighted GPA should be used.)
- Application fee is $40 plus $7.95 shipping, and applications and payments are due by February 12, 2020.
