Operation Hope provides FREE financial literacy education to youth ages 9-18 (4th-12th grade). Each year the (Greater) Philadelphia market educates 7000+ youths.
Operation HOPE provides a one hour training to our banking volunteers on how to teach the user-friendly curriculum. The curriculum can be taught in a variety of different ways. Operation HOPE staff can customize a program specifically to your needs/interests. For example, the banking volunteer can go one time per week for 45-60 minutes to teach one module per week for four weeks; or teach two modules per session and will visit the school a total of two times to teach the youth; or all of the modules can be taught in one day for what we call “BOOF in a Day” (3 hours needed for BOOF in a Day).
