Offer: Coro 2012-2013 Fellows Program -- Deadline: January 20, 2012

The Coro Fellows Program in Public Affairs is a full-time, nine month, graduate-level experiential leadership training program that prepares diverse, talented and committed individuals for effective and ethical leadership in the public affairs arena. Unconventional by traditional academic standards, the Fellows Program is rigorous and demanding, an unparalleled opportunity for personal and professional growth. The Fellows Program is offered in Los Angeles, New York, Pittsburgh, San Francisco and St. Louis.

"Coro teaches me to see established structures for what they are and what they do, but also invites me to take one step further: to see where and how I can shift these structures to better serve their purposes."
Sarah Chang (Fellows Program 2005-2006)

Coro introduces program participants to all aspects of the public affairs arena, preparing them to translate their ideals into action for improving their own communities and beyond. Coro Fellows learn to see the big picture - the community as a whole - and appreciate the varying perspectives that characterize our cities, states, and nation. Through field placements, group interviews, seminars, focus weeks, individual and group projects, they develop:

hands-on project experience
an understanding of complex public issues
leadership skills in inquiry, problem-solving, communication, organization analysis, and consensus-building.
political acumen to get things done
professional growth and personal transformation.
extensive personal and professional networks

Sixty-eight Fellows are chosen nationally each year through a highly competitive selection process, including a day-long assessment at each center’s city. The Fellows represent a broad range of academic, work, cultural, racial and economic backgrounds, ages and interests. What they share is an unwavering commitment to civic engagement. Recent participants have ranged from 21 to 53 years of age.

Coro is currently recruiting for the 2012-2013 Fellows Program.
