The program has two parts:
Part I (November 9, 2017 - May 19, 2018). Participants join a cohort and attend weekly training and learning sessions in which they: get to know others who are passionate about making positive change in their community; explore challenges and opportunities facing their community; receive mentoring and support while taking action to make progress on their projects; learn to build strong teams by leveraging people’s strengths; hone skills in group facilitation; and develop and execute a plan for their personal development as a leader.
Part II (June 14, 2018 - September 13, 2018). Participants continue to meet as a cohort to make progress on their projects. During this period Coro will provide continued support to Next Leaders and their projects through coaching, fundraising support, and engagement of the broader Coro network.
