ABOUT CORO NEW YORK
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.
