Coro is New York City's premier leadership training program and a community of 2,200 alumni across business, government, schools and non-profits that is shaping the city's future. For over 30 years Coro has used the city as its classroom – teaching students and executives, activists and entrepreneurs how New York City works so that they can make it better.
Coro runs several leadership training programs, each serving a different constituency at different points on their educational and career paths.

The YOUTH LEADERSHIP ACADEMY aims to strengthen the advisory capacity of the NYC DOE Borough Student Advisory Councils by providing participants a deeper understanding of the issues and policies that impact New York City youth and the skills needed to effectively influence more successful practice and implementation.
THE FELLOWS PROGRAM immerses young professionals in public affairs through intensive training and full-time consulting placements with government, labor, business, non-profit, and a political campaign.
The IMMIGRANT CIVIC LEADERSHIP PROGRAM strengthens immigrant communities by enhancing the capacity of its leaders to strategically influence policy decision-making and to build and sustain their organizational and personal visions for change.
LEADERSHIP NEW YORK challenges mid-career professionals from across non-profit, public and private sectors to explore critical issues facing New York City and develop new ways to lead change in their communities and organizations.
NEIGHBORHOOD LEADERSHIP provides individuals working to strengthen New York City's commercial corridors with the tools, experiences, and networks they need to develop new ways to lead change in their neighborhoods.
Coro alumni join the most diverse and engaged leadership community in the city. Together they explore current policy, continue to learn and connect with one another as they engage in public issues and civic life.
