Hugh O’Brian Youth is an organization that was started in 1958, by the Marine Veteran turned Celebrity Actor at 33 years old, when he was challenged by a Noble Peace Prize winner to use his success to do something to make a difference in the world.
Two weeks after being given the challenge O’Brian had designed a plan for the first HOBY Leadership Seminar. He felt that youth were really beginning to make the choices that would direct their life when they were about 15 years old. He decided to seek out sophomore student leaders and give them an experience that would push them to become even more outstanding. With the help of his friends and contacts, O’Brian conducted a weekend long event for about 30 young men in Los Angeles.
Scholarships were awarded based on the students submitting a record of their leadership and service during their ENTIRE junior year.
Over my 18 years as President, my program made available over $4M in Utah school student scholarships. I simply told the universities that we have the most highly selected leadership and service proven students in the state and you need them. They said, “Yes we do!”
Also, I secured thousands of substantial additional scholarships nationwide for HOBY by them using my original format.
