The on-the-ground work of Operation HOPE helped to lead our national government to make financial literacy the policy of the U.S. federal government through Executive Order of the President of the United States. I am now proud and honored to serve as the vice chairman of the bi-partisan U.S. President's Advisory Council on Financial Literacy, and chairman of the Council Committee on the Under-Served. Financial guru Charles Schwab serves as chairman of the Council. The President's Council is commissioned to serve both the administration of President George W. Bush and President-Elect Barack Obama until 2010.

Recently I was honored to be asked to serve as an expert on financial literacy for the Global Agenda Council (for Financial Empowerment) of the World Economic Forum.
Onward with HOPE,
John Hope Bryant
