Though she’s known as the co-founder of the Tillys retail empire, the Dana Point resident has also spent the past few years developing Tilly’s Life Center (TLC) to fulfill her dream of improving the mental health of teens and young adults. The nonprofit partners with schools, colleges, and hospitals to provide courses that urge young adults to participate in support groups, practice journaling, and develop the tools they need to “handle their challenges without becoming victims of their circumstances, and acquire a positive mindset,” Levine says.
