Join us to meet and speak with an alum of the Coro Fellowship! Learn more about the Coro Fellowship in Public Affairs and the application process.
Coro’s purpose is to train ethical, diverse civic leaders who develop the skills needed to empower communities, to work across all sectors, and to solve community/political problems. It was founded over 75 years ago to deepen the leadership skills of our future leaders who can work effectively with private, public and non-profit stakeholders, and come to a consensus for the greater good of the community. At a time, when our country is divided and political discord is the new norm, these skills are needed more than ever.
The Coro Fellows Program develops the next generation of aspiring leaders through a full-time, nine-month immersion. Using the New York City as a classroom, Fellows learn through interactions with various stakeholders, rotational work placements, leadership development seminars to develop critical thinking, analytical, governance and leadership skills. It is distinct because it is both a career accelerator and a catalyst for personal growth; fellows also have access to a committed alumni network of 2,500 accomplished New York City Commissioners, Council Members, activists, and social entrepreneurs.
Fellows will receive a monthly stipend of $1,500 per month during the 9 months of the Fellowship.
