Thank You to Our Coro Fellows Nonprofit Placement Hosts

Becky RasmussenNews

Our 2018-19 cohort of Coro Fellows in Public Affairs just wrapped up their first round of placements. A big thank you to all of the nonprofit organizations who served as hosts and provided valuable learning opportunities!

In addition, special thanks to Missouri Foundation for Health for providing placement sponsorship support.

Project placements are a cornerstone of the Coro Fellows program, exposing each Coro Fellow to the nonprofit, electoral politics, labor, government, and business sectors. Through their placements, Coro Fellows gain broad exposure to the region and develop competencies to make more effective decisions as future public leaders.

During a placement, the host receives the benefit of a completed, high stakes project and the Coro Fellow learns about the structure, culture, and role of the host organization in the community.

We’re still accepting hosts for the upcoming electoral politics, government and business rotations.
