About HOPE Fellowship Program
With over 100 participants to date, the Operation HOPE, Inc. (HOPE) Fellows, Interns and Loaned Executive (FILE) Program educates and empowers the next generation of silver rights leaders. Recognizing talent and passion, FILE challenges students and recent graduates to grow both personally and professionally. Through hands-on projects and various development activities, HOPE Fellows and Interns are provided the opportunity to learn and to lead.
HOPE’s youth empowerment programs focus on both the award winning Banking on Our Future (BOOF) Program, as well as the innovative HOPE Business In a Box (HBIAB) program.
The goal of BOOF is to impart basic financial education to help students envision and grasp the skills needed to make sound financial decisions and take charge of their financial future.
The entrepreneurship program HOPE Business In A Box (HBIAB) is intended to transform a youth’s natural aspiration and state of hope into practical, empowering, and life changing action steps to starting a business and becoming an entrepreneur. In this 2-3 month program students participate in BOOF, an entrepreneurship primer course, and then pitch their business ideas to a panel of judges. The winning students go on to work with a Business Role model to refine their business plans and upon completion can win up to $500 in startup funds to launch their business.
