History of HOBY’s L4S Program
On April 29, 1997, Ret. General Colin Powell led an unprecedented gathering in Philadelphia called the Presidents’ Summit for America’s Future. Every living President and First Lady along with 38 Governors, 100 Mayors, and delegations of Americans representing 140 communities joined together behind one vital mission: the need to build and strengthen the character and competence of today’s youth. It was at this summit that America’s Promise – The Alliance for Youth was created.
To fulfill its charge, America’s Promise has sought to increase positive youth-development support nationwide. By serving as a catalyst, America’s Promise has challenged and inspired thousands of individuals, organizations, and communities to expand existing efforts to ensure our youth become productive, responsible adults. HOBY took this challenge and made a commitment to America's Promise to implement a service component in its programs.
HOBY’s Legacy of Service
Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership (HOBY) Ambassadors' commitment to Leadership for Service (L4S), a national community service program, is changing their lives and enhancing the quality of life in their communities. L4S is specifically designed to raise the public's awareness of young people as a resource for community problem-solving, prepare young people to take on meaningful roles in community change initiatives, and develop the capacity of individuals, organizations, and institutions to provide meaningful service and leadership opportunities for youth.
HOBY alumni are encouraged to continue logging all of their community service and volunteer experiences in the years following their participation in a Community Leadership Workshop (CLeW), a State Leadership Seminar (LS), the World Leadership Congress (WLC) and the Advanced Leadership Academy (ALA). The L4S log can be printed and used as an appendix for college applications, scholarship applications, internship applications, and other opportunities where alumni are asked to demonstrate their lifelong commitment to service.
