For 70+ years, Coro Northern California has helped thousands of participants build culturally competent, collaborative and results oriented leadership skills. In Coro programs, individuals of diverse backgrounds examine and engage in real-world community leadership challenges, interview actual leaders, and are given activities to stimulate discussions and self-governance. The methodology empowers participants to take responsibility for their own learning. Coro facilitators are experienced at working with a diverse array of learners which include high school and community college students, early-career professionals, community and nonprofit leaders, teachers and academic leaders, farm workers, and government managers.Sup.

Sup. Safai announces the District 11 Leadership Academy– Apply Today!
District 11 is easily one of the most unique and original neighborhoods in San Francisco. From the homes nestled along McLaren park to the hilltop cottages of Oceanview, this community has been under constant transformation since the first business opened up along Mission @ Geneva. All the while, this evolution has been stewarded by local leaders, such as the late May Wong, who tirelessly advocate for the health and well-being needs of families for decades. As many of you know, D11 is still undergoing a rounds of changes today and we need to expand the number of informed residents who have the capacity to bring their community together, identify their priorities and engage agencies and institutions on their behalf. This advocacy will help ensure that our district remains a thriving, inclusive and diverse place to live and work.
Sup. Safai is pleased to announce the creation of the District 11 Leadership Academy, a partnership with the Neighborhood Empowerment Network and Coro Northern California.
