Host A Fellow

Host and mentor an emerging leader!

CORO takes pride in finding extraordinary program participants, as well as extraordinary companies, organizations, and governments agencies in which to place them. With talent, passion, and a strong work ethic, each CORO program participant is an incredible asset to their host organization.

CORO partners and field faculty act as hosts and mentors to program participants – teaching, training, and fostering leadership skills while contributing to the goals of the host organization. These field placements are a cornerstone of both the Fellows Program and the CORO Youth programs.
