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.

Mission:
To inspire and develop our global community of youth and volunteers to a life dedicated to leadership, service and innovation.
Results:
Alumni of our program have logged over 17,000 hours of community service in the last five years. During this year's seminar, students donated almost 4,000 books (worth almost $25,000), sorted five tons of food, and donated another 828 pounds of food to the local food bank!
