Presenting the Coro Fellows

Class of 2020

The Fellows have spent the last nine months gaining a deep understanding of Los Angeles and learning firsthand what it really takes to be a civic leader. In light of the pandemic, they swiftly shifted to virtual activities, adapting quickly to this new reality. We’re excited to recognize their hard work and accomplishments, and we hope you’ll join us in celebrating the graduation of our 62nd Class of Fellows in Public Affairs!

When: Friday, May 29, 2020, 6:00pm – 7:30pm PST
Where: Online. Details will be sent upon registration.

For questions, reach out to Abril at or (213) 267-6478.

The Fellows are currently seeking job opportunities, and have a diverse set of skills and capabilities.
