Waldorf Student Participates in 2015 Hugh O’Brian Leadership Conference (HOBY)


Max Pascucci, a sophomore at the Waldorf School of Garden City, has been selected to participate in the Hugh O’Brian (HOBY Youth Leadership Seminar at Long Island University’s C.W. Post Campus on May 29-31.

Founded in 1958, HOBY’s mission is to inspire and develop our global community of youth and volunteers to a life dedicated to leadership, service and innovation. HOBY programs are conducted annually throughout the United States, serving local and international high school students. HOBY programs provide students selected by their schools to participate in unique leadership training, service-learning and motivation-building experiences.

Max was nominated by Ms. Suzanne Miller, Waldorf’s High School Guidance Counselor and College Advisor, in order to recognize his leadership talents and to apply them in becoming an effective, ethical leader in his home, school, workplace and community.

During the three-day seminar, Max will join students from across the New York metro area and participate in hands-on leadership activities, meet leaders from New York State, and explore his own personal leadership skills while learning how to make a positive impact in his community. The seminar curriculum is based on the Social Change Model of Leadership and develops leadership from three perspectives: Personal Leadership, Group Leadership, and Leadership for Society.
