YLG Mentorship Program

The mission of the mentor program is to foster an exchange of professional ideas, friendship, and expertise among young real estate professionals and industry veterans.

Sharing many of the same characteristics as a ULI Product Council, this group mentoring program is resonant with ULI’s culture of sharing experiences gained, mistakes made and lessons learned.

Structure

Each mentor group consists of 4 to 6 YLG members with an interest or experience in similar product types or sectors. Each group is led by one mentor. Mentor groups are expected to meet for from March to December 2018, 6 to 8 times (minimum). Meetings can include: lessons learned from a mentor’s career, discussing career goals, case studies, social events, project tours, guest speakers, or anything else mutually agreed upon to further the relationship among the group.

Commitment

Every applicant must be committed to the Mentor Program in order to create the type of atmosphere necessary for success. Attendance and participation in each meeting for the entirety of the program is expected.

Confidentiality

Confidentiality is absolute, in all ways and forever. A breach in confidentiality will be treated as a resignation from the Mentor Program.

Active Participation

Mentees should have a clear idea of what they want to achieve through the Mentor Program, whether that be obtaining career advice or learning from their peers and mentor about specific issues in their sector. Each mentee must take responsibility for facilitating (help determine agendas, coordinate schedules, etc.) at least one meeting. This role is crucial to taking the scheduling work off of the mentor’s hands and keeping the group together.
