Welcome Ambassadors, Alumni and Volunteers of Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership

Ever since we have been cultivating a relationship of volunteerism, service and support that has benefited both of our organizations in big ways.

HOBY VolunteersFinding volunteers FAQ:

In what ways can Phi Sigma Pi volunteer for HOBY?
Our Members can volunteer individually or as a Chapter as…

  • Leadership Seminar Facilitators and Junior/Associate Facilitators

  • CLeW Volunteers/Organizers

  • Committee Members

  • Service Day(s) Volunteers

Members can also make monetary and good donations for HOBY programs or to sponsor an Ambassador. We are always open to new ways that we can get involved and support HOBY!

Do we need to contact the Phi Sigma Pi National Office if we receive a monetary donation from Chapters/Members?
We would appreciate it if the National Office was made aware of any monetary donations made to HOBY from our Members. We have asked Chapters to include their Chapter name with their donation so we can keep track. If you receive a monetary donation, please e-mail Sarah Smith at hoby@phisigmapi.org.

HOBY VolunteersI want to contact a specific Chapter, how do I get their contact information?
You can view our Chapters here to see which ones are located near you/your event. Most of our Chapters have Facebook pages that you can contact them through. You can also email hoby@phisigmapi.org and we will connect you with the Chapter President.

Do Members need to fill out any paperwork for the National Office in order to volunteer at a HOBY event?
No. Members just need to fill out the appropriate paperwork that HOBY International requires.

A Chapter/Member has reached out to me looking to volunteer. Do we need to let the National Office know?
No. We have advised our Members to contact their local HOBY representative before they do any service projects benefitting HOBY. Though you don’t need to contact the National Office, we would appreciate any feedback on your experience working with our Members!

HOBY VolunteersCan I reach out to Alumni as well?
Of course! Our Alumni are just as excited as our Collegiates about our partnership with HOBY. We have several Alumni Chapters and many individual Alumni all across the country. Please contact the National Office at hoby@phisigmapi.org if you would like to reach out to Alumni.

Will the National Office cover any travel costs or administrative costs associated with volunteering?
No. Any travel/administrative costs will need to be covered by the individual or the Chapter.

Do we need to run background checks for Phi Sigma Pi Members?
Background checks are NOT required for Phi Sigma Pi Members performing volunteer service with HOBY Alumni or attending social events with HOBY.  However, typical background check procedures apply for those volunteering at a Leadership Seminar and/or they are dealing directly with students (e.g. Facilitators). If you have any questions you can email hoby@phisigmapi.org.
