ULI is the oldest and largest network of cross-disciplinary real estate and land use experts in the world that supports and encourages peer mentorship, especially young professionals starting their careers. With this mandate, the ULI Young Leaders Group has developed a peer-to-peer mentorship program – the Student Mentorship Program (SMP). The SMP was developed to connect undergraduate students with industry leaders and provide mentorship on future careers in real estate.
Through this program, students will be paired with a young professional who will provide mentorship support to assist the student in transiting to life after graduation from their post-secondary program. The long-term goal of the program is to provide students with educational support and access to a larger professional network within ULI.
The SMP ran October through to April (with 2020 being the kick off year of the program!) where mentors and mentees are matched on a 1:1 ratio.
ULI BC’s Mentorship Program now falls within our ULI BC Etkins Scholars Program. Click here to learn more!
We are looking forward to growing this program through the Etkin Scholars Program in 2021/22!
