Youth Fellows Program

An immersive summer program for high school students

Youth Fellows Program (YFP) is a 6-week immersive, cohort-based summer program for rising high school juniors and seniors. This program is designed to foster the next generation of Southern California leaders, educating them not just about public life and institutions, but also how they can be more effective advocates and ambassadors for their communities. Participants leave the program with an understanding of how Los Angeles operates, stronger communication and analytical skills, more confidence, and a network of Coro alumni eager to support their career development.
