It’s hard to believe but it is already March and another UrbanPlan school year is coming to an end. So far, ULI Washington has offered UrbanPlan at two high schools – Washington-Lee High School and Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School – and two universities – American University and Georgetown University (for the first time). At these schools, ULI Washington volunteers have engaged over 125 students.
UrbanPlan thrives due to the generosity and commitment of ULI Washington’s members and sponsors. Special thanks to ULI members who have volunteered for UrbanPlan this calendar year: Dan Anderton, Robert Atkinson, Elizabeth Baker, Claudia Baragen, Susan Bell, Desiree Cooper, Rosalyn Doggett, Tom Dwyer, Thomas Dwyer, Ed Gosselin, Brian Grindall, Edwardo Han, Ruth Hoang, Qin Hu, Alexander Inglese, Chelsey Jersak, W.

Volunteering with UrbanPlan is a great way to interact with students, share your subject matter expertise, and connect with fellow ULI members. Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School is the next UrbanPlan volunteer opportunity.
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.
