For more than 50 years, the HOBY World Leadership Congress has been inspiring and empowering young people to become the next generation of global leaders.

Since 1968, the HOBY World Leadership Congress (WLC) has empowered students around the world to broaden their perspective and begin to see themselves as part of something larger—the global community we all share. As the global aspect on HOBY’s Pathway to Leadership, the WLC is a weeklong program designed to empower high school juniors and seniors to become mature, cognizant leaders and active global citizens. More than 450 students from 14 countries participate in WLC each year, including Argentina, Albania, Mexico, Turkey, China, Spain, Bolivia, Taiwan, Korea, and the United Kingdom. Students leave the WLC feeling empowered and equipped with the leadership skills they need to reach their goals and make meaningful contributions to society.



At the WLC, Ambassadors have the opportunity to:

  • Interact with global leaders through keynote speeches, panels, and mentor meetings
  • Experience international diversity through mixed-culture student groups
  • Explore and exercise leadership through interactive workshops and activities
  • Participate in community service projects and field trips
  • Earn two college credits (optional)
