WLC – World Leadership Congress
July 22-29, 2017 – Loyola University – Chicago, IL, USA
Since 1968, HOBY’s WLC has been bringing students together from across the globe to discover their potential as leaders. Upon completing a Leadership Seminar, the WLC is open to international students ages 15 to 17. Each year, over 400 students representing up to 20 countries attend this unique week-long international program with keynote panels, presentations, workshops, field trips, and community service projects. The curriculum is based on the Social Change Model of Leadership with additional focus on Global Leadership. Students emerge from the WLC as with greater awareness for global issues.
