The Hugh O'Brian Youth Foundation was established in 1958 by actor Hugh O'Brian. Its objectives are to seek out, recognize, and develop leadership potential in high school sophomores here and abroad; to encourage and assist members of this formative age group in their quest for self-identification and self-development; to interface these potential leaders with recognized leaders in business, industry, government, science, and education through give-and-take discussion sessions; and to present through this exposure a keen exploration of the American economic incentive system and our democratic process.

Each year HOBY holds leadership seminars at the state and international levels, providing opportunities for outstanding tenth graders to arrive at a better understanding of themselves and their future role in the economic system which motivates productive activity in our society.
