In this audio interview with Stanford Center for Social Innovation correspondent Ashkon Jafari, founder Charles Best talks about how he started the organization and what some of its challenges have been along the way. He also discusses the organization’s use of cross-sector collaborations, initiatives it is currently working on, and the impact it is having on America’s young people.
