It provides government and business leaders with data about America's youth in grades 5 through 12 and assesses the attitudes and behaviors often ascribed to entrepreneurs. The data could be tapped as a leading indicator for America's future GDP, job growth, and role in the world, as well as inform strategies in education and enterprise sectors about what youth need to be successful in the future.
HOPE and Gallup partnered in 2011, making a multi-year commitment to gain insight into how America’s youth envision their economic future, and how to understand their level of participation in our nation’s economy. The goal of the Gallup-HOPE Index is to identify and empower the nation’s next generation of business builders, so communities can ignite and sustain long-term economic energy.
The Gallup-HOPE Index collaboration capitalizes on the diverse strengths of Gallup research and Operation HOPE outreach and empowerment programs and it is informed by an advisory board of financial literacy and youth and community development experts from government, nonprofit, and corporate backgrounds.
"Operation HOPE and Gallup understand that America's youth are the future workforce and business leaders of this country and that youth achieving their financial goals goes hand in hand with America realizing its economic potential and remaining competitive globally, said HOPE Founder, Chairman and CEO John Hope Bryant, who also serves as Chairman, Subcommittee on the Underserved and
