100% Volunteer Led
Volunteers make a significant impact on the lives of HOBY participants, while also having an opportunity to evaluate their own life goals and objectives, share their experiences, and have fun!
Volunteers come from all backgrounds and experiences to work together towards realizing HOBY’s vision. HOBY volunteers are keynote speakers and guest panelists who challenge students’ ideas about leadership; they are group facilitators who guide participants through their experience; they are advocates who engage local communities and companies to help fund the participants’ program costs; they are recruiters who share the HOBY story and encourage schools to get involved; and they are professionals who serve on the boards and program committees of HOBY state corporations and provide guidance on program planning, marketing, finances and more. With volunteers aged 17 to over 80, HOBY seeks out energetic and driven individuals who want to make a difference, motivate young people and serve their communities.
Come volunteer for HOBY! Whether you are a long-time volunteer and plan to continue for the coming year, or a potential new volunteer and want to learn more, please complete the offical HOBY volunteer application. If you don’t know what your role might be, that’s fine too – please apply online, and we’ll find a volunteer opportunity for you!
Join our 2021 Seminar Planning team!
It is time to start planning for our 2021 seminar – June will be here before we know it! HOBY Maine will be held June 11-13, 2021 with on-site required staff arriving on June 10th.
If you are interested in applying for any of our Seminar Planning Team positions, please fill out this application. You can preview a list of Roles and Descriptions by clicking the link below. If you have questions, feel free to reach out to Lexi Clark or Megan Clifton our 2021 Co-Leadership Seminar Chairs.
Please note that some roles are “OSR” or On-Site Required meaning you would participate in pre-seminar planning from September to June as well as be expected to attend the seminar in full. Some roles are “DVR” or Day Volunteer Roles meaning that you would participate in pre-seminar planning as well as be expected to be on site on a particular day as a day volunteer but not spend the night on site. Some roles are “PSPR” or Pre-Seminar Planning Roles meaning that you would participate in pre-seminar planning but would not have a role on site in this position. However, in a PSPR, you could apply for an on-site role such as facilitator, operations team, junior staff or medic. (Applications for these roles will come out at a later date.) Please note that some positions have specific age requirements. Unless noted, most positions are a 1-year term.
You will notice this application does NOT include any seminar specific roles (facilitators, junior staff, media, etc.). Applications for these roles will be sent later this year.
