Running For Public Office:Emerging Leaders in Public Service
Running for Public Office: Emerging Leaders in Public Service is an experiential learning program of the Coro Center for Civic Leadership. Standing for election to a public office is an important form of civic engagement and one of the highest forms of public service. The vision of Running for Public Office is to strengthen citizen participation in public elections and to increase the diversity and level of preparation of candidates running for office in Greater Pittsburgh.
Our goal is to recruit, select, engage and prepare highly motivated individuals to lead successful electoral campaigns in Greater Pittsburgh. The course is open to prospective candidates and campaign staff who are now contemplating running for office.
Coro does not seek to advance any particular ideology, political party or policy agenda. We strive to assemble a class of 20 participants that represents the diversity of Greater Pittsburgh in terms of race, gender, religion, political affiliation, neighborhood location and economic status.
