Interested in volunteering with HOBY? These are just some of the opportunities we have available:


Facilitators (must be 21 or older)

The HOBY Virginia Seminar is looking for 20+ Facilitators to help make the Seminar the best yet! Some of the skills sought by Facilitators include being able to work within a predetermined schedule, the willingness to follow rules and guidelines, and a desire to serve as a respected role model for high school students.

Although the Seminar may be only a few short days, the influence you may have on these students will be long term. Few Ambassadors have participated in such a rewarding weekend and the HOBY Virginia Seminar will be an unforgettable experience for all of them. The impact on their lives and their futures will be great. You will play a tremendous role in creating a positive HOBY experience.

Perhaps this is your first experience with HOBY? There is a great deal of planning that goes into every Leadership Seminar. The Seminar weekend is a great beginning to becoming more involved in the HOBY Virginia program.

Since the Facilitators play such an important role in the seminar weekend, it is absolutely mandatory to be available for the entire seminar weekend. Additionally, prior to the seminar, Facilitators must attend a training session to become familiar with their role and responsibilities.
