Coro is New York City’s premier civic leadership training program.

We are a community of 2,400 alumni across business, government, schools, and non-profits.

Coro participants and alumni have the tools to shape our city's future.

Participants use the city as a classroom to learn how New York City works.

Coro trains youth and their adult partners to bring youth voice into policy-making.


For students and executives, activists and entrepreneurs who want to learn how New York City works so that they can make it better, Coro New York is the premier leadership training organization that delivers the skills, knowledge, and network to lead change. Participants become leaders and influencers, developing innovative solutions to public issues, incorporating different points of view in their decision-making, and inspiring others to lead change.
