All U.S. high school sophomore students have attended one of HOBY’s leadership seminars in the spring are eligible to attend that same year’s WLC.
HOBY’s Advanced Leadership Academy (ALA or the Academy) is a new program for any U.S. or Canadian high school junior or senior (ages 16-18 at the time of the program). Students are not required to have participated in other HOBY programming to be eligible to participate in the Academy.
