Active Minds Recruiting Protocols

• Active Minds will never ask an applicant to send – and Active Minds will never send an applicant – a check or any payment or item of value (such as a gift card) in connection with the interview process or job onboarding process.

Active Minds will never ask for personal information about a job applicant (such as their Social Security number or banking information) until the job onboarding process;

Active Minds will never extend a job offer without first conducting multiple rounds of video interviews. The Active Minds interview/hiring process will always include at least 3 virtual interviews.

All legitimate Active Minds job offers are extended verbally by the HR/People & Culture Team.

We are aware of current job-related phishing attempts using domains that look similar to genuine Active Minds domains that attempt to collect personal information for fraudulent purposes.

If you are expecting an email from Active Minds, please always verify that the sending domain in the email is and NOT any variation of it.

• For further information on how to protect yourself from employment scams, please review these “Consumer Advice” guidelines.

We could not be the groundbreaking organization we are today without the amazing people who contribute to our mission every day.

A welcoming and diverse workplace is fundamental to our success. Varied perspectives and experiences remind us that everyone has mental health. Ours is a safe, supportive, and caring workplace.

Meet our team


We value a healthy work/life balance and aim to provide flexible paid time off for all employees. We are proud to foster an environment that is friendly to remote working, as well as providing organization-wide mental health days to all employees.

Read Our Values


We know that physical health and mental health are equally important and in fact inseparable. We encourage our staff to be open about any needed medical accommodations. We also practice well-being in small ways, such as through encouraging long lunch breaks to get outdoors, hosting staff-wide yoga and wellness events, and more!


Our offices are in the vibrant Dupont Circle neighborhood in Washington, DC, just three blocks from the metro. Dawson’s Market is in our building, Emissary x Pergamino is a few steps away, and trendy restaurants and shops are all around.


We provide all full-time employees a comprehensive benefits package that includes medical and dental coverage. We also offer paid maternity and paternity leave, an Employee Assistance Program, and a competitive 401(k) match.

anti-racism and inclusion

Active Minds is committed to the continued work and process of becoming a more anti-racist and inclusive organization. We strongly encourage and seek applications from people of color, people with disabilities, bilingual and bicultural individuals, people with lived experiences, veterans, and LGBTQI individuals.
