This past year, Bakline worked with HOBY officials and designed the tees both students, volunteers and ambassadors wore during a weekend seminar in New York. Bright colors help distinguished the roles each member played and was emblazoned with the key words most HOBY attendees live by: Empower. Lead. Excel.
Bakline co-founder Matt VosBurgh is a HOBY alum – (The Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership) is an organization dedicated to “training and nurturing the young leaders of tomorrow.” Its mission is to provide lifelong leadership development opportunities that empower youth to achieve their highest potential.
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 programs provide youth selected by their schools 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 local HOBY affiliate level and on HOBY’s Board of Trustees. Due to the selfless efforts of volunteers and the contributions of generous donors, nearly 9,000 students participate in HOBY programs annually.
We at Bakline were honored to work with HOBY and want to wish all the students who pass through its programs all the best as they endeavor new challenges and responsibilities.
