Coro Center for Civic Leadership is proud to announce the 2008-2009 Coro Fellows. As their very first assignment, the 12 San Francisco Fellows will be spending four days in the City of Fremont learning about what makes this community unique.
Coro, founded in 1942, is a private, non-partisan organization that conducts leadership development programs in public affairs. Coro offers a variety of programs to train leaders to effect community change and to strengthen democratic self-governance. Coro centers are located in San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, St. Louis, Pittsburgh, and Kansas City.
The Coro Fellows Program in Public Affairs is a full-time, nine-month, graduate-level program. Every year a select number of Fellows are selected from a national pool of applicants. Fellows complete field assignments in business, political, government, labor, and community organizations. In addition, they participate in special weeks focus on communication, state government, innovation, agriculture, the media, and philanthropy. Fellows complete group and individual projects, and attend weekly seminars where they participate in policy and organizational governance exercises and effective communication training.
In June, Coro and the City of Fremont celebrated the graduation of 16 senior managers spearheaded by City Manager Fred Diaz. To enhance leadership skills and increase their engagement across city departments, Coro devised a program consisting of eight intensive seminars. In addition to learning Coro's leadership tools, participants engaged in an experiential program aimed at increasing their ability to initiate positive change in municipal government.
