Review for Coro Center for Civic Leadership, Pittsburgh, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Carpe Coro! As a current participant in the Fellows Program in Public Affairs (just one of several Coro programs), my group of 15 decided that we would all commit to Carpe Coro! This stems from our understanding of just how much the program has to offer- if we choose to accept the challenge, and to what degree we choose to accept it. When I was applying to the program and speaking with former Coro fellows, they all said that their Coro year was the year of their life during which they grew the most, hands down. We grow through -learning how to work in a group and come to consensus -giving and receiving feedback -presenting our work -learning how to ask the right questions -talking to people who have significant impact on pittsburgh -screwing up -experimenting -working across the public, private, and non profit sectors -and much more So far, Coro staff has almost always been supportive of our group. They challenge us to improve, which is what is most important to me.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

alumni who are doing amazing things

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing the potential of my peers, learning how to harness our potential as a team. -access to pgh

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

intelligent, action-oriented, forward thinking

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

provide fellows with salaries expand program operations to other cities

Ways to make it better...

there had been sufficient funds to spend our retreat away, instead of in the Coro training room

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

sustainability, (specifically funding) deciding how much to break with tradition

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
