HmoobTeen has two main goals:
1. To diminish the sense of isolation among Hmong teens and validate their experiences by providing a forum where they can express themselves through various forms of work. This includes and is not limited to addressing issues relevant to Hmong teens and potential mental health issues by providing coping strategies and/or resources.
2. To provide a space for youth development. This includes and is not limited to providing teen editors leadership opportunities, the chance to further develop their skills in writing and designing and to learn what it means to run a publication.
