Chief Points is a newletter targeted at providing information to students about topics pertinent to their education and future.


Each spring, 10,000 high school sophomores from across the country join one of HOBY’s 70 State Leadership Seminars to recognize their leadership talents and apply them to become effective, ethical leaders in their home, school, workplace and community.

What is the State Leadership Seminar (LS)?
HOBY’s flagship program, the State Leadership Seminar, empowers high school sophomores to develop their leadership talents to become the leaders of their community. The seminar curriculum is based on the Social Change Model of Leadership and develops leadership from three perspectives: Personal Leadership, Group Leadership, and Leadership for Society. Learn more from our Sophomore Registration Kit. Or Click Here for a one-page flyer.

What do students do at the State Leadership Seminar?
The 3-4 day seminar weekend is filled with interactive activities and workshops that allow students to discover their personal leadership strengths. After understanding leadership from three different perspectives, students then learn to cultivate their skills to lead others and make a positive impact in their community.

Who can join the State Leadership Seminar?
The LS is only for sophomores, so don’t miss out! Students should visit their sophomore counselors if they are interested in participating.
