Summarizing your suitability for a Program Coordinator position is what the cover letter is mainly used for.
To enable you to write an effective cover letter, it is best to check the advertisement thoroughly to determine what the hiring manager wants specifically in a candidate.
Once this is done, you will be able to figure out what it is that you have to offer, in sync with what is required by the hiring manager.
Remember that a cover letter is a link between your resume and the job that you want to apply for. This particular document is used to emphasize and highlight the information that you have presented in your resume, and to convince the hiring authority that you have the skills and experience necessary to be the best candidate.
Each role that you apply for will need a tailored cover letter to do your candidature justice. One cover letter does not suit all.
Here is a tailored cover letter for the position of a program coordinator position:

July 30, 2017
Mr. Edward Rogers
Human Resource Manager
YMCA of Nottingham
599 Priest Road
Nottingham, NH 03290
Dear Mr. Rogers:
My recent commission as a program coordinator at The University of Nottingham has prepared me well to plan and coordinate the day to day fiscal, administrative and operational activities of a narrowly defined funded program. With my ability to focus on a single purpose, I am sure that I will be an asset to YMCA of Nottingham, in the role of a Program Coordinator.
Over the last 5 years that I have worked in this capacity, I have learned and contributed much regarding grant planning and administration, budget management and control, and program implementation. Serving as a principal liaison between students, faculty, staff members and management personnel, I have been highly successful in ensuring the realization of program goals.
My most specific expertise lies in collecting and analyzing data, preparing scheduled and individual reports, and maintaining statistical data, along with performing particular activities of a programmatic nature, in direct support of the accomplishment of program objectives.
I am confident that with my ability to make sound procedural decisions and judgments and coordinate and organize programs and events, I will stand out from the candidate pool that you are presently looking through. To further emphasize on my abilities in this regard, I would like to meet with you in person, for which I will contact you next week.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
