HOBY's Here! Arrival and Check-in Instructions

HOBY Ohio South staff have been planning, training, and preparing for a great, energetic, and powerful leadership seminar for you! The countdown is on…

With only a few days to go, it’s time to make sure you have completed the online pre-seminar forms emailed to ambassadors and parents. Anyone who still needs to submit their forms would have received a call from HOBY last week. If you have questions, please contact [email protected].

Don’t forget, all medical forms and key deposits are also due but can be brought to the seminar on the first day. Review the packing list, and start preparing for your weekend. The medication form is only required if you are bringing prescription medicine to HOBY.

Check-in will begin at 12:30pm on Thursday, June 8. You can find directions here.

Check back here and in your inboxes for more information about closing ceremonies and check-out, but save-the-date from 2pm-4pm on Sunday, June 11.

See you all soon!

2017 Staff Applications

HOBY Ohio South is looking for leaders to serve on staff for the 2017 Leadership Seminar to be held June 8–11, 2017 at Marietta College.

With our move to Marietta College for our 40th HOBY Ohio South seminar, this year will be an historic one for our site. We’re looking forward to both welcoming back returning staff members and getting to know some fresh faces to create a dynamic and engaging seminar staff.

Junior Staff members (under 21) will need to log at least 100 L4S hours at and ensure and an ambassador from your high school is registered for the seminar. In addition, a gift-in-kind, financial sponsor, or donation in the amount of $175 will be required by all Junior Staff. This must be turned in by May 1, 2017.

New this year, Senior Staff members (21 and over) will be challenged to raise or contribute at least $100 to the seminar to help offset the cost of their room and board at the seminar.

Also new this year, Junior Staff applicants are being asked to upload a 2-3 minute video demonstrating what makes you a unique leader, and/or what special talent you’d bring to the seminar. You can do anything you want with the video, from a simple webcam recording to a produced video. Don’t worry about whether this is a talent of yours or not — we’re focused on what you communicate, not how you’re communicating it. Make sure you create the video before you complete this application, as you will be required to upload it and can’t save the application while in progress.

You do NOT have to have prior HOBY volunteer experience to apply but previous leadership experience, non-profit experience, and/or occupational fields that work with youth are qualities that we will be looking for in a successful team.

The application must be completed by January 27, 2017. If you have questions, please contact the Director of Facilitators, Leslie Huber, at [email protected].
