Crisis Text Line, the hotline for a text-dependent generation, is reaching troubled teens in new ways and using the data it collects to be more effective in times of trouble. Here are some surprising findings.
How do you know which changes are worth reacting to? Join Do Something CEO Nancy Lublin, Greylock data scientist DJ Patil, and strategist Kate Gardiner in conversation as the first installment of Fast Company's Generation Flux Branch salons kicks off.

Everywhere I turn, articles, conversations, and presentations reaffirm my belief that we need to move past the intergenerational finger-pointing and harness the good, albeit different, approaches to work and life that the Millennial generation offers.
DoSomething, headed by Fast Company columnist Nancy Lublin, has recognized five 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.
