All HOBY Volunteers must complete this online application no matter what your role. If you do not know what your role might be, that is fine too! Please apply online and we will find a volunteer opportunity for you!


Speaker/Panelist Volunteer

Our students spend three days participating in leadership training, service-learning and motivation-building experiences, and we need volunteers from the community to help make this happen. We have various panels and speaking events throughout the weekend. If you would like to volunteer this year and help motivate New Jersey youth, please contact our Director of Programming.


Anyone over the age of 21 can volunteer on our senior staff in various capacities. Most people serve as a senior facilitator, guiding students in groups of about 10 through their experience during the weekend. There are also other ways to volunteer on our senior staff before, during, and after the seminar weekend. You do not need to be a HOBY alumnus to volunteer on the senior staff. For more information on volunteering on our senior staff, please contact our Director of Facilitators.

Operations Staff

Staff volunteers are typically HOBY Alumni who are 18-20 years old and work to help the seminar run smoothly and make sure ambassadors have an OUTSTANDING experience! For more information on volunteering on our staff, please contact our Leadership Seminar Chair.


Directors are senior staff members that lead each of our teams. Please visit our Directors page to learn more about what roles we have with NJ HOBY. For more information on volunteering on our senior staff and to learn which directors positions may be open, please contact our Leadership Seminar Chair.

Junior Staff & Team Alumni

Anyone who has attended an NJ HOBY seminar will tell you that our Junior Staff team keeps the heart of HOBY beating. Junior Staff volunteers are HOBY Alumni who are finishing up their junior year of high school. Students must also fulfill a fundraising quota and complete an essay in order to participate on the HOBY Volunteer Team.

If you are interested in volunteering as a junior staff member at the seminar, contact our Director of Junior Staff so that we can send you the application.

And remember, all volunteers must register and apply online here!
