Get Ready for HOBY!

2024 HOBY Ohio South Ambassadors and Families,

Congratulations on being chosen as a 2024 HOBY Ambassador! Soon, you will join other outstanding sophomores (we call you ambassadors at HOBY) from across Ohio for an unforgettable weekend of leadership development, skill building, and fun. We can’t wait to meet you.

This year’s HOBY Ohio South Leadership Seminar will be held June 6-9, 2024 at Marietta College in Marietta, Ohio. Before you can join us, we ask that you please complete a series of Pre-Seminar Materials.

You must complete the Pre-Seminar Materials online before you can attend the seminar. These forms are due Monday, May 13, 2024An email was sent to all parent and ambassador email addresses that were provided, but the forms only need to be filled out once for each ambassador. If you did not receive this email, please reach out to us at [email protected] so we can get you added to our email list.

Some important information:

  • We recommend you complete the forms in one sitting. There is a feature to save your work and return using a special link, but if you lose the link we cannot help you recover it. The forms usually take 20-30 minutes to complete.
  • Each ambassador should complete these forms along with a parent or guardian. Signatures are required throughout from both the ambassador and a legal guardian.
  • Have a headshot photo, such as a yearbook picture or nice selfie, ready to upload. These are only used internally to help our all-volunteer staff get to know each ambassador before the seminar.

We’ll be in touch plenty between now in the seminar, but if you just can’t wait (we can’t blame you!) you can check out some additional information like FAQs and a suggested packing list on the Getting Ready page of our website.

Again, we’re so excited to meet you in just a couple short months! If you have any questions in the meantime please don’t hesitate to reply to this email, reach out to us at [email protected], or call or text us at (740) 500-HOBY(4629). We’re here to help!
