A Creative Nonprofit Manager Seeks to Influence the Business World
The headquarters of the charity Do Something are in a plum spot of Manhattan, just off Union Square. But inside its offices are telltale signs of nonprofit thrift.

The chief executive of the charity, which promotes youth service and volunteerism, shares a small office with her assistant.
