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. This program matches young professionals (mentees) with experienced professionals (mentors) for guidance and support, while offering mentors an opportunity to strengthen ties with the young future leaders of the local real estate community and ULI.
The structure of the group is 3 entry level, 2 mid-level, and 1 senior level person.
The value of the mentor/ mentee experience is determined by the quality and participation of its Each participant is therefore expected to be a committed and participating part of the program, contributing as much value to the experience as they take home.
ATTEND EVERY MEETING and ATTEND FOR THE FULL MEETING: Each participating member has been chosen for the value that their unique background and experience brings to the program. Missing a group meeting or part of a meeting reduces the value for every other member of your group.
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.
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.
