Meeting The Moment
Learn how we harness the power of hope and center the talents, aspirations, and energies of young people to meet their needs, break down barriers, and build a more inclusive and equitable future, especially for BIPOC and LGBTQ+ youth.
United By a Bold Idea
With backing from The Omidyar Group we are united by a common desire, from our founders, to catalyze social impact and empower young people.
Hopelab was created as a lab to explore the idea that stable philanthropic funding might support a deeper exploration of the way translational research, technology, and investment opportunities can bolster resilience and improve the health and well-being of young people. To this day, that remains a guiding vision of Hopelab.
We take risks, explore, and push boundaries to help uncover new learnings and opportunity areas for more impactful, diverse, equitable approaches to youth mental and emotional health. Our team of researchers, designers, strategists, and investors cares deeply about prioritizing the youth we serve and are driven to build more resilient communities to support their mental well-being. With our expertise in youth co-creation, participatory and translational research, digital health, user experience design, and impact investments, we work in partnership to delve into opportunity areas like capacity-building, digital engagement strategy, telehealth, positive psychology, the Medicaid sector, policy change, identity affirmation, empathy-building, and more.
