The Coro Fellows Program in Public Affairs uses the community as a classroom to train the next generation of change makers. Coro develops the skills, knowledge and networks to enable Fellows to forge connections and lead across the nonprofit, business and government sectors. Today’s complex issues and diverse communities present evolving challenges and opportunities, creating a need for skilled, aware leaders.
Starting in Fall 2017, 60 competitively selected applicants will become part of cohorts of 12 participants in five U.S. cities. Ranging in age from 22 to 35, the new cohorts represent a spectrum of communities, interests, ideologies, and experiences.
The Princeton Review has said of Coro: “Every group has its ultimate challenge, an experience that defines those who participate as the most talented in their field. Track-and-field enthusiasts have the decathlon. Whiz kids have the Odyssey of the Mind competition. Fitness freaks have the IronMan Triathlon. And aspiring public servants have the Coro Fellows Program.”
The Coro Fellows Program in Public Affairs is a full-time, nine-month program featuring field placements in different sectors, immersive experiences in the community, and group process skills development. For more information about the program, visit: http://www.corofellowship.org
