Youth Fellows Program

Coro’s 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.

“As their mentor, I could see the growth in each of my students who participated in the Youth Fellows Program. They blossomed intellectually and gained confidence. Both students applied early to colleges and both were accepted…They both wrote about their experiences in the Youth Fellows Program in their college essays. I believe that the trajectory of their lives will forever be transformed as a result of their experiences in the program.”
