OurĀ Focus

Due to the opportunity gap in the Twin Cities, TSF focuses its support efforts on diverse low-income urban and immigrant youth populations. The overwhelming majority of youth we work with come from communities of color, and the populations we work with speak numerous languages, including but not limited to: English, Hmong, Spanish, Somali, Arabic, Amharic, Burmese, and Oromo.
