HOBY is inspiring!! I attended as a sophomore in high school in 2006, and I lost contact with the organization until this year when I was asked to come back as a facilitator. I was reminded of the incredible impact this organization has on these young future leaders of the world. The HOBY Utah conference is uplifting, and every participant leaves with a renewed sense of confidence and responsibility. Although I attended as a facilitator, I was taking avid notes the whole time. HOBY reminds us all of our true potential...it is truly OUTSTANDING!

I have been involved with HOBY Utah since 1998. I have seen over 1,500 students come and partake of this wonderful adventure. It is rewarding to see their enthusiasm and excitement as they leave our 3 day seminar and want to help make a change in their schools and communities. I have had parents send me thank-yous for the change that they have seen in their children. Many of our students are brothers or sisters of former students because they know HOBY will have an impact on them. HOBY Utah teaches students to focus and have a purpose in their volunteering. What a great life changing program this has been.

HOBY Utah is OUTSTANDING. To see the change in the lives of people in this way is inspiring. I wonder how it is possible for something like this to come together and it does time and time again. If things like this happened more often there would be so much good in the wold. I have watched individuals make huge impacts in their lives and their communities. This is worth donating to. A cause that will enlighten the minds and hearts for those young people who can make all the difference in the world.

Many teenagers lack the confidence to use their skills, talents, and potential to serve their communities in sustainable ways. They are overwhelmed by peer-pressure and forced into mediocrity, but this all changes with HOBY Utah. Students are transformed as they learn to have a mindset of growth instead of settling for the status-quo.
