On Tuesday, March 29th, we had the youngest person in Operation HOPE history (I think) to teach Banking on Our Future! 13 year old Zachary Oshin, who attends Viewpoint School in Calabasas, CA, commenced his instruction of Banking on Our Future to a group of 20 middle school students at Vista Middle School in Van Nuys, in collaboration with After-School All-Stars.

Over 4 sessions, Zachary taught the students about the basics of personal finance, from the unique perspective of a middle school student.

At age 13, Zachary already invests, gives to charity, and operates his own car-washing business, for which he gave out his business cards to a few select students.  This is silver rights in action, for a new generation.
