We get a lot of questions about what thego is supposed to be. An eye? A location marker? A horseshoe? Thego was created in 1970 by Hisashi Nakamoto. The logo is meant to look like an eye to represent the fact that Coro always has its eyes open in public affairs. The center circle represents focus, and the opening ipresents room for exploration and new discoveries. Who knew?

Building the leadership community of New York City


Coro is New York City’s premier leadership training program and a community of 2,400 alumni across business, government, schools and non-profits that is shaping the city’s future. For nearly 30 years Coro has used the city as its classroom teaching students and executives, activists and entrepreneurs how New York City works so that they can make it better. Coro programs provide participants with a deeper understanding of how policy is shaped, the skills to effectively engage in civic life, and a network of engaged and influential alumni to help them reach their goals.


Coro builds the leadership community of New York City


Coro runs six leadership training programs, each serving a different constituency at different points on their educational and career paths. THE FELLOWS PROGRAM immerses young professionals in public affairs through intensive training and full-time consulting placements with government, labor, business, non-profit, and a political campaign. The IMMIGRANT CIVIC LEADERSHIP PROGRAM strengthens immigrant communities by enhancing the capacity of its leaders to strategically influence policy decision-making and to build and sustain their organizational and personal visions for change. LEADERSHIP NEW YORK challenges mid-career professionals from across non-profit, public and private sectors to explore critical issues facing New York City and develop new ways to lead change in their communities and organizations. MAYOR S YOUTH LEADERSHIP COUNCIL prepares a diverse group of young people to serve as a critical advisory resource to City Hall while developing their own leadership skills. The MYLC offers an important vehicle for youth input into city policy making; provides young people with leadership training and creates a body of youth ambassadors to serve as liaisons to their peers and their communities. Most importantly, it involves young people as valued and active participants in city policies that shape their every day lives. NEIGHBORHOOD LEADERSHIP provides individuals working to strengthen New York City s commercial corridors with the tools, experiences, and networks they need to develop new ways to lead change in their neighborhoods. YOUTH LEADERSHIP ACADEMY is grounded in the belief that the educational system is more effective when its policies are shaped by the young people it serves. In partnership with the New York City Department of Education (DOE), the YLA provides leadership training to students serving on its citywide Borough Student Advisory Councils (BSACs). Coro alumni join the most diverse and engaged leadership community in the city. Together they explore current policy, continue to learn and connect with one another as they engage in public issues and civic life.
