I am raising money to attend the HOBY World Leadership Congress. This is an educational trip (not a vacation). Thank you for your support!

Dear Family & Friends,

Earlier this year, I was honored to be chosen out of 404 sophomores at Flowing Wells High School to represent our school at the Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership (HOBY) Conference at Arizona State University. HOBY is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that has been serving the youth of Arizona for over 32 years by offering exceptional leadership development programs for high school students.

I attended the 4-day HOBY leadership conference June 2-5, on the campus of ASU and found it to be a life-changing experience! HOBY taught me how to not only be a leader in my school and community, but also how to lead myself and others now and in the future.

At the end of the HOBY Arizona seminar, I was chosen among a group of 150 students to have the opportunity to attend the HOBY International World Leadership Congress program in July on the campus of Loyola University in Chicago! This is an incredible honor!

This leadership program is a week long experience that brings together over 400 students from across the United States and around the globe. Because HOBY has a limited amount of scholarships available, the cost of the trip is my responsibility.

This is why I am asking for your help. I will have the opportunity to attend classes and build on what I have learned so that I can become a great leader for our community.

The cost to attend is about $2000 (including airfare). I currently have a small part time job to help pay for the trip. I would be grateful for ANY contribution you would be willing to make to help make this dream come true.

Thank you!
