Leadership Council

The BronxWorks Leadership Council is a collection of committed people who bring unique knowledge, connections and skills that complement those of the formal directors to more effectively support the Agency. In addition, the Council will help BronxWorks to maintain formal and visible relationships with individuals who are important in our communities. Members serve as ambassadors and advocates for BronxWorks. The BronxWorks Leadership Council does not have formal authority to govern the Agency but can exert real impact and influence over the direction of the organization.

For more information contact Andrew Lin at or 646-393-4004.
