Do Your Best Work Here

We are a team of researchers, designers, strategists, and investors with expertise in youth co-creation, participatory and translational research, digital health, user experience design, and impact investments. We care deeply about prioritizing the youth we serve and are driven to build more resilient communities to support their mental well-being. Hopelab is founded by The Omidyar Group, a collection of organizations that support the vision of Pierre and Pam Omidyar. 


Youth Lab

Are you a young person interested in shaping what the future of what mental health and well-being looks like? If you’re ready to collaborate, lead conversations, and gain experience with shaping digital product design, youth mental health solutions, research collaborations, marketing initiatives, and health education, check out the opportunities available with Hopelab’s Youth Lab. All positions are paid. 

How Youth Lab Works

Hopelab Youth Lab works in collaboration with several youth-serving organizations, including Peer Health Exchange, Character Lab, and YTH. We are all guided by a shared desire to give youth a stronger voice and push our organizations, and others, to think about centering those who are most impacted by our work as part of the creation process. Engagements within Youth Lab can vary from three hours to three months; all are paid opportunities and might range from surveys, product feedback, digital content creation, help with launching a new product, or a design research exploration. Because Youth Lab is a coalition between other youth-centric organizations, an engagement often provides further opportunities for collaboration within the network. 


We’re always looking for smart, collaborative, talented, and passionate people to join our team, and believe that every individual brings a unique and valuable perspective. We encourage people from underrepresented groups to apply. Are you ready to be inspired, take risks, and find meaning in what you do? Check out our open positions.
