“I’ve become more understanding and give people chances to express themselves a lot more. I’ve become more confident in getting to know new people too.”

LEAH, AGE 17, Alumni

“HOBY shaped and motivated me to become the person I am now. I have confidence, aspirations and the drive to make a change.”

SOPHIE, AGED 16, Alumni

“The HOBY experience has been a great benefit to our students. They are more confident and so much more positive about the school and their education. They have become great ambassadors, really keen to take the initiative. I would thoroughly recommend HOBY UK for the transformational and lasting impact it can have on a young person’s life.”
