Every year, the La Crescenta Woman’s Club helps sponsor a student from one of the local high schools to attend the Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership Organization – HOBY. This year they sponsored Dimitrios Aguilar, a sophomore at Verdugo High School.  Several of the club members attended the closing ceremony to support Aguilar.

The three-day leadership program takes place at Loyola Marymount University and teaches the students leadership techniques. The event takes place over a three-day period with approximately 100 students from across the country in attendance. The students learn individual leadership styles and attend hands-on programs to promote critical thinking, mentoring and goal setting.

The HOBY mission statement is to inspire and develop a global community of youth and volunteers to a life dedicated to leadership, service and innovation.

The La Crescenta Woman’s Club, a longtime member of the community, raises funds to support scholarships and other community needs on a yearly basis. Those interested in joining this group can contact Cindy Charles at (818) 249-2374.
