CORO FELLOWSHIP LOS ANGELES
THE CORO FELLOWSHIP LOS ANGELES
is founded on Coro’s unique curriculum of core leadership skill-building paired with real-world experiences that rely on the city as the classroom. Unconventional by traditional academic standards, the Coro Fellows Program is rigorous and demanding. Since 1947, the Fellows Program has combined experiential learning, face-to-face interaction with private, public, and non-profit decision-makers, and development in analytical, group governance, and communication skills. Coro program participants learn about the real world in the real world – by actively questioning, interacting with diverse constituents, finding resources, and coming up with innovative solutions to the problems faced by their communities. Together, participants explore community dynamics, leadership, and decision-making, while building the skills necessary for successful careers in the public, private, and non-profit sectors. Coro Fellows learn to:
- Build consensus among multiple stakeholders
- Communicate with members of diverse communities and sectors
- Analyze resources, constituencies, and goals
- Understand the subtleties of group process and decision-making
The program runs from September through June. Coro Southern California chooses twelve Fellows who have demonstrated leadership within their academic, professional, and/or local communities.. The Fellows Program has five major components: field placements, seminars, interviews, focus weeks, and community-base impact projects.
