Founded in 1958, HOBY's mission is to inspire and develop our global community of youth and volunteers to a life dedicated to leadership, service and innovation. HOBY programs are conducted annually throughout the United States, serving local and international high school students.

HOBY Arizona is proud of having a long history of serving the youth of our state for over 36 years.

HOBY programs provide youth selected by their schools a great opportunity to participate in unique leadership training, service-learning and motivation-building experiences. HOBY also provides adults with opportunities to make a significant impact on the lives of youth by volunteering. Over 4,000 committed HOBY volunteers plan and execute the programs each year, serving both at the state HOBY affiliate level and on HOBY International's Board of Trustees. Due to the selfless efforts of volunteers and the contributions of generous donors, over 9,500 students participate in HOBY programs annually.
