Coro Community Fellows - applications due May 1
--What possibilities emerge when Bay Area adults come together to investigate, analyze and reflect on key civic issues?
--What new relationships can be developed from these individuals learning from one another and their community?
The Coro Community Fellows Program is a part-time program (15 days over a four-month period) offered by Coro Northern California that will bring together 16 adults of all ages from diverse backgrounds who want to enhance their leadership skills, strengthen their community network, and improve their communities through firsthand action. Through a combination of evening and day seminars, Coro Community Fellows identify and explore local issues such as transportation, energy, housing, urban violence and civic engagement.
We're looking for proven and emerging leaders of all ages-from recent graduates to retirees-and we welcome applicants from throughout the Greater Bay Area. We seek candidates with:
--Strong personal initiative and motivation
--Desire to make an active contribution to the Greater Bay Area community
--Evidence of leadership experience or potential
--Meaningful involvement in their workplace or community
--Ability to work well independently and within a diverse group and a strong intellectual curiosity.
Participants will be carefully selected to create a microcosm of the community in terms of age, education, work and volunteer experience, political perspective, and ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds. They may be high school graduates or mid-career or retired professionals. A Bachelor’s or advanced degree is not required.
Tuition for the Community Fellows Program is $3,500. Full and partial scholarships are available and Coro Northern California’s financial aid program reflects our belief that individual financial circumstances should NOT be a barrier to participation in a Coro program.
