Finding Leaders to Power New Strategies that help South Bronx Families and Seniors.

Purpose-driven board leaders have an incredible capacity to transform the board’s ability to accomplish mission.  In 2019, Step up for Better Living developed a strategic plan to address several operation challenges - among them, increasing the number of board seats.


When you start serving on a board, you become so much more aware and smarter about the possibilities around you and how to seize them... I truly believe the more I lean into this opportunity, the more I can get out of it.

We were matched with a fantastic candidate who has a passion for education and a passion for the environment - the perfect combination for our board. She is now a full board member! Fabiana brings great skills in HR and a corporate perspective, as well as the international focus that we needed. The BoardLead team was great, handled our questions with patience, and was very supportive throughout the process!

Trinity Thorpe-Lubneuski has been a wonderful addition to our board. She has been a very active board member, attending multiple events and giving feedback when appropriate. The biggest contribution has been our increased partnership with Comcast since she joined Concilio, including helping our organization become a Lift Zone Center to provide free wifi connectivity to our community. We have also been able to provide over 300 laptops to our families since Trinity joined our board. Overall, it has been a great experience and we continue to enjoy her presence as a board member of Concilio.

I was SO impressed by my BoardLead experience– the team offered so much support and guidance as I approached my first ever Board position, which is something I had been dreaming about for a while. The process was both rigorous and accessible– a perfect balance. The training and guidance provided is also extremely valuable for a first-time Board member. This placement was really life & career-changing for me, and I couldn't be more grateful!

Our new board members, matched through BoadLead, are enthusiastic, responsive, and excited about our mission. They fill skills gaps we had on our board and help us diversify our board in terms of geographies, backgrounds, and identities.
