Shaping the pathways of tomorrow

Foreshadow is a non-profit aspiring to bring change by bridging the achievement gap for youth in the Twin Cities.

 

Preparing Twin Cities youth for a brighter future

Our mission is to equip the youth within the Twin Cities community with the necessary knowledge and life skills to be successful throughout their educational and professional futures. We achieve this through our Innovation Program, an initiative that allows kids in fourth and fifth grade to create and market a real product. Proceeds from the sale of this product go to an organization of the children’s choice, thereby teaching business concepts and demonstrating the impact they can have on their world.

Driven by our four founding principles, we strive to show kids that they can be anything — and spark their imaginations in the process.

Recently, Foreshadow has joined the TurnSignl Foundation in its commitment to the advancement of social justice. This partnership allows us to empower community members of all ages to reimagine a brighter future.
