I just recently accepted the Chairmanship of the Coro Center for Civic Affairs, Northern California, Program Committee. Coro was the foundation for my career in organization development, having myself been a Coro Fellow in Public Affairs in Los Angeles in 1965-66, and then on the staff in San Francisco from 1969 to 1977. This is my second round as a member of the Board. As experienced as I am with this organization, I'm bowled over by the energy and excitement Amy Chan and Ben Polansky are generating with our evolving Exploring Leadership program for high school students. We are now serving 180 students a year and the effects are transformative—as this new video supported by Kaiser Permanente will demonstrate. It gives me a lot of hope that young people are once again feeling interest in getting involved in their communities and civic affairs, and that involvement in service learning can have such an impact on their school performance and their lives.
