ULI Washington Young Leaders:

2018 – 2019 Mentorship Program

Deadline: Friday, July 20, 2018
Members Only

Introduction

Registration is now open for the program’s 13th program year, which will begin in September 2018 and run through Summer 2019. Please complete the application process by July 20th to be considered for the program. Applicants admitted to the program will be sent a separate link to pay the $75 registration fee.

The ULI Washington Mentorship program pairs small groups of young leaders with industry veterans, for the purpose of building relationships and sharing industry best practices. Groups schedule their own monthly meetings and determine their own content, often joining together for project tours or panel discussions. The program also hosts networking events throughout the year as a benefit to participants.

As the success of each group is only possible with 100% participation and attendance by all group members for the full program year, program participants are selected based on the competitive application process outlined below.

  • Each group has 1 mentor and 5-7 young leaders
