2020 Leadership Seminar


May 29 - 31, 2020

Saint Anselm College
Manchester, NH

We are pleased to announce that HOBY New Hampshire will host it's 2020 leadership seminar at Saint Anselm College for the third year in a row. The annual three-day seminar will be filled with interactive activities and workshops that allowed students to discover their personal leadership strengths all while exploring the beautiful Saint Anselm College campus. After understanding leadership from three different perspectives - individual, group, and societal - students then learned to cultivate their skills to lead others and make a positive impact in their homes, schools, and community.

[HOBY is] an amazing experience that really taught me a lot, specifically having to do with society and community service. The plethora of possibilities out there for leaders like us to make an impact on the community was made known to me through this conference and I'm greatly appreciative for that.

The curriculum for the leadership seminar is based on HOBY's vision to

motivate and empower individuals to make a positive difference within our society. HOBY believes students represent the future leaders of the world.

By developing and understanding effective and compassionate leadership, we hope ambassadors will be able to realize their leadership potential, and take action in their homes, schools, and communities.


The HOBY program is based on the Social Change Model of Leadership and develops leadership from three perspectives:

  1. Personal Leadership     

  2. Group Leadership     

  3. Societal Leadership

We have an action packed weekend featuring a number of engaging, thought provoking, and fun activities and speakers, including:

  • 3 Hours of Service at the NH Food Bank Production Garden

  • Panels

  • Keynote Speakers
