Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership Seminar Holds Youth Service Project

MORGANTOWN -

The Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership Seminar held it's youth service projects Saturday in Monongalia County.

There were 106 ambassadors, or students, at six different locations. Including the Friends of Deckers Creek outdoor learning park.

The seminar is for high school sophomores around the state. Students are picked by their guidance counselors.

"We want kids who can think critically, who can meet a problem head on and come up with a solution," said Molly Rakes, the HOBY Leadership Seminar Chair. "Our big goal is to teach them not what to think, but rather how to think, and come up with solutions without being guided to them."

The service project ended this evening with the ambassadors being encouraged to perform 100 hours of community service over the next year.
