ULI New York offers one of the largest one-to-one Mentor Programs throughout the ULI network with the goal to foster an exchange of professional ideas and mentorship between experienced executives in the industry and young real estate professionals.
The mission of the ULI New York Mentor Program is to foster an exchange of professional ideas and mentorship between experienced executives in the industry (“Mentors”) and young real estate professionals (“Mentees”) under the age of 40. Mentees will have the chance to learn from experienced industry players and bounce career-related ideas off someone they might not have otherwise met. In order to gain the most out of this program, it is crucial that Mentees approach the program as an opportunity to learn from a seasoned professional, not as an opportunity to land your next job. Mentors volunteer their time to make a connection with the younger generation and there is an expectation that the relationship will be respected accordingly.
One of ULI’s primary functions is to promote the highest level of professionalism and as we head toward greater specialization in our industry this program will give Mentees the opportunity for a broader range of professional experience than offered in their current positions. This program also offers Mentors the opportunity to strengthen ties with future leaders of the local real estate community and the opportunity to gain a fresh perspective on real estate while gaining additional experience as an advisor, supporter, and coach.
Program Duration – October to June
The program application window opens annually in early August, closes in early September, and applicants are notified of selection shortly thereafter.
*Note – Mentees may apply to be a part of the Mentor Program for a maximum of three consecutive years, at which point they will be ineligible to participate for one year before reapplying for admission to the program.
Every participant must be committed to the Mentorship Program in order to create the atmosphere necessary for success. Missing more than one meeting may disqualify you from further participation.
