You are listening to the live interview with five young changemakers (Marvelyn Brown, David Burstein, Maggie Doyne, Eric Glustrom and Darius Weems) who have won the coveted Do Something Awards this past week, propelling their social entrepreneurship projects to the next level -- projects like an orphanage in Nepal, quality education in Uganda and college tours about HIV/AIDS.
The annual Do Something Awards, held June 4 at New York's legendary Apollo Theater, honored young people (under 25, in case you were wondering if you make the cut) who do extraordinary things to change their communities and the world.
DoSomething, headed by Fast Company columnist Nancy Lublin, has recognized four young social entrepreneurs with $10,000 grants--and one with a prize of $100,000. Fast Company will profile one of these enterprising youth each day this week.
