THE BRONX - Two Bronx organizations brought home the gold and silver awards for nonprofit leadership at the first award ceremony held by the Harvard Business School of New York Community Partners.

Awards were given to organizations that displayed excellence in leadership and demonstration of best practices in nonprofits.

Receiving the gold award was Per Scholas, an organization that offers free high-quality technology job training, placement and career development opportunities to underserved communities. The silver award went to The Bronx River Alliance.
