UrbanPlan New Volunteer Training
We are pleased to announce the next UrbanPlan Volunteer Training has been scheduled for Thursday, May 11, 2017! The training will be from 10:30 AM to 5:30 PM at the ULI Headquarter/ULI Washington office (2001 L Street NW, Suite 200 Washington, DC 20036.
UrbanPlan thrives due to the generosity and commitment of ULI Washington’s members and sponsors. In order to serve as a classroom volunteer, members must first participate in a training session, where they are assigned roles in the development team and engage in a “lightning-round” version of the exercise. Once training is complete, ULI staff recruits volunteers to serve in the classroom during the school year in opportunities lasting 1-3 hours. There is no minimum or maximum requirement for volunteers to serve throughout the year. Volunteering with UrbanPlan is a great way to interact with students, share your subject matter expertise, and connect with fellow ULI members.
Conceived by ULI in conjunction with UC-Berkeley, UrbanPlan has reached over 20,000 high school and university students across the country since 2003. In the Metropolitan Washington Region over 2,500 students have been reached. UrbanPlan is designed to challenge students in the areas of public speaking, communications, team dynamics, creativity, decision-making and community values. It exposes students to issues related to government, economics, finance, environmental sciences, sociology and geography.
