IN THIS EPISODE
There is a mission that God gave me and a call 14 years ago. Sharing the gospel with trauma-ed youth doesn’t stop because of Covid-19
Lisa Castetter founded Teen Leadership Foundation as a way to help foster youth Thrive.
Would you tell us a little bit, Who you are?
Would you share a few statistics or challenges?
How you help teens unlearn what they have experienced through trauma?
3-4 Weeks ago our country completely changed on the dime, from that Friday to Monday because our residents are young and in school, they all have entry level employment, their jobs were lost. And so insecurities come up. They have small amounts of rent to pay and other bills. They’ve been able to see how within one week, our church partners, their volunteers, their mentors, their budget coaches all rallied and wrapped around them.
What does hope look like?
Are you aware of any statistics around the globe?
What is the scope of your reach?
What would you say to the youth that Do have a family, is the message different?
What is the best way for people to connect with what you are doing?
Is there anything you’ve learned with covid-19?
