Young Leaders Group
The Young Leaders Group consists of ULI New York members under the age of 35 who want to be actively involved in shaping the built environment and the future of the real estate industry in the area.
Founded in 2003, the Young Leaders Group of New York has over 1,000 members who enjoy events throughout the year designed specifically for them and by them, in addition to those offered by the New York District Council. The Young Leaders Group includes a diverse group of real estate professionals and students, including architects, engineers, financial analysts, city planners and lawyers.
To create a unique setting in which tomorrow’s New York industry leaders may interact, both professionally and socially, with today’s industry leaders and each other.
The signature programs developed by the YLGs are carefully tailored to support career development.
In Secrets of Success, members participate in an intimate discussion with influential leaders in the real estate community. YLGs gain exclusive access on current or recently completed projects from a senior leader in the real estate industry.
Peer to Peer offers opportunities in professional development and leadership training. These sessions serve as an ongoing opportunity to share the issues that real estate and related industry professionals face each day. Topics can range from practical real estate educational content (pro forma modeling, Argus training, Zoning 101, etc.) to career development and leadership training (career path advice, developing a personal brand, etc.) They ideally feature seasoned YLG speakers, but could also feature senior-level professionals.
Mobile Workshops offer an inside look at an interesting project or emerging neighborhood. Neighborhood tours often take place in the warmer months, and project tours take place as site conditions permit. Mobile Workshops are exclusive to YLG and are led by one or two knowledgeable individuals on the project or neighborhood. Tours are followed by informal networking onsite or at a local restaurant or bar.
YLG Out and About offers informal networking and volunteer opportunities. This programming builds connections and networking and supports volunteer efforts in advancement of ULI’s mission. Examples of “Out and About” programs include museum outings, Habitat for Humanity, and happy hours.
