Each year, Southwest Ohio HOBY  hosts more than 200 high school students on the beautiful Antioch College historical campus for a four day leadership seminar. It is the effort of countless volunteers and their individual passion that makes the Southwest Ohio HOBY Leadership Seminar one of the most educational, empowering experiences for the students who attend.

We are always looking for new volunteers, so if you are interested in impacting tomorrow’s leaders, please complete the HOBY Volunteer Application by clicking here! A few of the ways you can help are: 

  • Attend monthly seminar planning meetings (meetings usually occur the first Saturday of every month between Oct – Jun)
  • Work directly with students during the programs as Adult Facilitators
  • Organize speaker panels and plan leadership building activities
  • Recruit schools and students to participate
  • Assist with fundraising and gathering donated items
  • Provide oversight and guidance by serving on the local board of directors
