CHICAGO (CBS) — More than 500 high school students from around the world were in Chicago this week, to take part in the Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership Foundation (HOBY) conference.
WBBM Newsradio’s Mike Krauser reports students spent several hours sprucing up the grounds at Humboldt Park on Tuesday.
HOBY president and CEO Javier LaFianza said this week’s events were designed to help students identify their passions, and where they want to make a difference in the world.
“These people are amazing. These young people are making a difference. I could take all day telling you stories,” he said.
