Leadership Programs

Coro Fellowship in Public Affairs

Since 1947, the Coro Fellows program has equipped emerging leaders with the resources they need to understand how decisions are made, how complex policies are shaped and how to influence meaningful change.

In 2011, FOCUS became a national Coro center, incorporating the Coro Fellowship in Public Affairs and Coro Women In Leadership into its continuum of leadership development programs.

In 2018, the FOCUS St. Louis Board of Directors made the difficult decision to retire this program at FOCUS after the 2018-19 program year. Learn more about that decision here.  Thank you to all who have supported the St. Louis Coro Fellows program with your time and resources!

FOCUS St. Louis remains a Coro center and will continue to host the Coro Women In Leadership program each spring and fall.
