$listbox3.Items.Clear();
	$here3 = Get-ADUser -SearchBase "OU=Staff,OU=Amigos,dc=homelab,dc=com" -Filter * | Get-ADUser -Property DisplayName, title | Select -expandproperty Name
	$here3 = $here3 | sort-object
	load-listbox -Listbox $listbox3 -Items $here3

maybe add something like this?
$listbox3.Columns.Add('Name')
$listbox3.Columns.Add('Title')

Why don't you just use Out-GridView?
And there's no need to stress AD by calling Get-ADUser twice.
$here3 = Get-ADUser -SearchBase "OU=Staff,OU=Amigos,dc=homelab,dc=com" -Filter * -Property DisplayName, title | Sort-Object
$here3 | Out-GridView

When used with -PassThru, it can even be used to let a user select one (-OutputMode Single) or multiple (-OutputMode Multiple) items from the list.

I created a GUI using poweshell studio with a listbox element that gets populated with the code above.  I am not sure how to utilize the gridview and also could not figure out how to use the columns mentioned above. Perhaps this is not something I can figure out with at this time.

Thank you for the tip about not stressing the ad with multiple get-user requests.

The code snippet is a full functional example. Where exactly do you have problems?
Out-Gridview will automatically create a column for each property of the objects passed. If you only want a subset of the objects' properties, you pass them through the usual suspect, that is, Select-Object:
$here3 = Get-ADUser -SearchBase "OU=Staff,OU=Amigos,dc=homelab,dc=com" -Filter * -Property DisplayName, title | Sort-Object
$here3 | Select-Object -Property DisplayName, Title, samAccountName | Out-GridView

The code snippet does work. Thank you for the example. I just don't know how I could use the out-grid view in my gui. I have attached a picture of what I am working on and I put an arrow pointing to my list box.listbox
