Each August, HOBY conducts a Volunteer Training Institute (TI), gathering its key volunteer leaders from across the nation. Volunteers learn and exchange ideas on best practices in program management and development, youth leadership training, fundraising, recruitment, marketing and more. The participants return to their home sites and resume their responsibilities with renewed enthusiasm and vision, and further train their site’s volunteers.

All Training Institutes are organized with the collaboration of the volunteers themselves, who serve on the planning committee, as workshop trainers and as TI Chairpersons.
