Our 2020-2021 Mentor Program application window is CLOSED
The application window is open annually for 4-6 weeks in late summer/early fall
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 in ULI under the age of 40 (“Mentees”).
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 a 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 exposure to a broader range of professional experiences than otherwise offered in their current positions. The program also offers Mentors the opportunity to strengthen ties with future leaders of the local real estate community by acting as an advisor, supporter, and coach to their assigned Mentees.
Every participant must be committed to the Mentorship Program in order to create the atmosphere necessary for success. Lack of active participation may disqualify you from selection in future cohorts.
The application window for the 2020-2021 program is now CLOSED!
The 2020-2021 Mentor Program application window closed Friday, September 25, 2020.
*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.
