Highline Stages - CHANGE

Two leaders spill the beans, grill each other, and share stories never-heard-before.

 

About Nancy Lublin: Since August 2003, CEO and Chief Old Person Nancy Lublin has overseen the website dedicated to youth volunteering and activism Do Something’s growth and led the effort to begin awarding more grant money to young people who want to make a difference. She turned the organization from a debt-ridden, “old school” not-for-profit with offices in multiple cities nationwide, to a fast-moving Internet company capturing the attention of a generation of do-ers.

About Charlie Best: Charles Best leads DonorsChoose.org, a nonprofit organization which provides a simple way to address educational inequity. At DonorsChoose.org, public school teachers create classroom project requests and donors can pick the projects they want to support. Charles launched the organization twelve years ago out of a Bronx public high school where he taught history. DonorsChoose.org is one of Oprah Winfrey’s “ultimate favorite things” and was named by Fast Company as one of the “50 Most Innovative Companies in the World,” the first time a charity has received this recognition. For three years, Fortune Magazine has named Charles to its “40 under 40 hottest rising stars in business.”
