Fellows Program in Public Affairs

Since 1947, the Fellows Program has equipped emerging Southern California leaders with the resources they need to understand how decisions are made, how complex policies are shaped, and how to influence meaningful change. Using the city as a classroom, Coro Fellows learn through interactions with private, public, and nonprofit decision-makers and work as a group to develop critical thinking, analytical, governance and leadership skills. Coro Fellows join an unparalleled community of engaged alumni and leave the program with an understanding of how Southern California works and with the knowledge and skills to make it better.
