Interested in volunteering with HOBY? Below are just some of the opportunities we have available.


Facilitators (must be 21 or older)

Facilitators will lead a team of Ambassadors throughout the seminar. 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 Facilitators 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. Facilitators will play a tremendous role in creating a positive HOBY experience.
