Apply to the Coro Fellows Program in Public Affairs if you want to develop the skills and self-knowledge to be an effective leader. You will do this by meeting challenges presented to you as assignments and by challenging yourself. You will have a close network of peers who will amaze you, frustrate you, and support you. You will develop a broad network of professional contacts. You will have the opportunity to explore different career possibilities, and you will gain insight into the relative strengths and weaknesses of government, nonprofit, business, and other sectors. This program is not for everyone. It requires maturity, flexibility, and an open mind. It is a time-intensive commitment. I have heard that Coro as an organization is rethinking some of its internal structure, but I believe this will help it to focus more effectively on its mission. If you are considering donating money or expertise to Coro, do it because our country and our cities need civic leaders who can effectively collaborate to untangle complex social problems. Coro develops these leaders.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
working with a great group of passionate young people.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
market itself more effectively and reach more people.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
