Florida Leadership Foundation D/B/A North Florida HOBY Overview
Target demographics: Youth in their sophomore year summer
Direct beneficiaries per year: 110 students attend on average each year
Geographic areas served: North Central and the panhandle of Florida
Programs: HOBY North Florida is one of three regional seminars that take place in Florida. Usually occuring in June, it is an intense four day seminar dedicated to leadership, service, and personal growth. We teach young students how to think, not what to think. We stress the value of community service and challenge each HOBY participant to log 100 hours of community service over the year following their seminar. Our area encompasses a wide and diverse school base, from Jacksonville to Pensacola, Malone to Inverness and everywhere in between. We pride ourselves on offering each student an individual experience in a group setting and encourage them to open their minds and hearts to the lives and experiences of other students.
