We're back, baby! On this first episode of Season 5 of the I Heart Costa Mesa podcast, we welcome Founder + CEO of the Teen Leadership Foundation, Lisa Castetter, to the studio! Castetter is paving the path to adulthood for teens aging out of Orange County foster care. Not content to just help these young adults become functional, she's setting her sights on shaping them to become the next generation's leaders. As part of her vision - and buoyed by her background in the apparel industry - Castetter recently launched Framewerk Imaging here in Costa Mesa. It's a local print shop that's employing former foster youth, and raising money to fund Teen Leadership Foundation. If you're a local business or organization that needs teeshirts, mugs, hats, or other swag printed up - check out Framewerk Imaging and help support Castetter's mission.
