Coro’s Next Neighborhood Leaders program helps to identify community challenges and the leadership qualities needed to navigate those challenges successfully. The new emerging leaders collaborate on projects that will create a more thriving local community. Each year Coro conducts these programs in a different local community — first in 2010 in Pittsburgh’s Hill District/Uptown neighborhoods, and then, in Pittsburgh’s Northside in 2012. The Next Neighborhood Leaders program is now working in South Pittsburgh.
