About HOPE Fellowship Program
Recently launched, the Operation HOPE, Fellowship and Internship Program works to empower and develop the next generation of leaders to pursue careers that will create global economic and social justice. Our vision is to develop a cadre of young leaders ready to work together across HOPE departments to successfully assist in growing our financial dignity work and silver rights movement. HOPE Fellowships and Internships will offer exceptional young men and women the opportunity to acquire skills and build vital social networks that will enhance their career paths and effectiveness as future leaders. The purpose of the HOPE Fellows and Interns Program is to provide accomplished and highly motivated young adults with a first-hand experience in the world of economic empowerment and a sense of personal dignity and leadership.
