Frequently Asked Questions

  • Who are you and what is this?

    Hopelab is a non-profit foundation and impact investor. For the last 20 years, we’ve been creating digital things that support the health and well-being of young people. Now, we’re creating Youthlab, which gives teens a place to share their thoughts, designs, creativity, and experiences to support Hopelab’s work (and get paid to do it).
