The Academy follows Coro’s 70-year model of developing diverse leaders to work together across differences to create solutions for the common good.


The model includes:


 -Seminars and Focus Days: Seminars focus on building skills in a team setting and focus days provide understanding of   city departments, people and processes.


 -Leader Interviews: Participants interview San Francisco department leaders and elected officials to establish relationships and understanding.


 -Community Clinics: Seminars include opportunities to share experiences, insights and advice in a confidential peer coaching setting.


 -Group Project: At the end of the program, participants will give a public report to the community in response to a challenge provided by the District Supervisor for citizen input.
