HOBY NY Metro relies on volunteers and donations for its existence. Our committee of volunteers works tirelessly and selflessly throughout the year to plan the leadership seminar and raise funds to finance the event. 

The cost for one student ambassador to attend HOBY is approximately $225, which covers the cost of all seminar materials, meals, and lodging for the entire 3-day leadership seminar.

Each year, we hope to recruit new student ambassadors from schools and neighborhoods that have yet to attend our leadership seminar. Your support allows us to reach out to these families and schools, and allow them to engage and partake in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. 

If you are interested in supporting HOBY NY Metro and would like to make a tax deductible monetary gift, credit card donations are being accepted on our website. All transactions are processed by PayPal. A PayPal account is not required to make a donation. Donations can also be made out and mailed to HOBY NY Metro, 155 West 68th Street, Suite 833, New York, NY 10023. If you believe that you can help connect us with supplies or materials that can help alleviate costs, please feel free to contact us.
