The Coro Fellows Program is a highly selective, nine-month, full-time, graduate-level program that prepares early career professionals to be effective and ethical leaders able to work across differences to serve the common good. Fellows gain real job experience on project assignments in five organizations and in a variety of sectors: government, business, political campaigns, and nonprofit organizations. Utilizing these urban experiences as a classroom, Coro Fellows gain hands-on experience to better understand complex public issues, organizations, and people. In weekly seminars, the twelve Fellows develop high-level skills in self-awareness, group dynamics, critical thinking and decision-making. Fellows also benefit from a national alumni network of over 10,000 whose members include influential leaders from all sectors.
