Coro is New York City's premier leadership training program and a community of 2,000 alumni across business, government, schools and non-profits that is shaping our city's future. In a city as complex as ours, it isn't just the mayors and chief executives who shape our future. At Coro we believe that meaningful change must also come from those in business and communities, schools and unions, government and advocacy groups – not all with formal titles – but with the ideas and conviction to do more. And for 30 years, no other group has put this insight into practice more successfully than Coro. We are a community who, through our single and collaborative efforts make the city great. We are the activist who built one of the nation's first green-collar training programs in the South Bronx; the commissioner overseeing the renaissance of city parks through public-private partnerships; the entrepreneur teaching immigrant women to bake the breads of their native lands; the executive director leading the city's response to the foreclosure crisis. These people came away from Coro with a deeper understanding of how policy is shaped, the skills to lead change in their organizations and communities, and a network of engaged and influential alumni to help them reach their goals. They are part of a collaborative community with a shared belief that a single person, with sufficient drive and passion, is what will make New York a better place for all who live and work here.
