Mentorship Program

The mission of the Mentorship Program is to provide an opportunity for Young Leaders (ULI members age 35 and under) and seasoned ULI members to connect, grow, and create lasting relationships by sharing their knowledge and experiences in a group atmosphere of confidentiality, trust, and respect.

Mentorship Program

ULI Washington Young Leaders:

2018 – 2019 Mentorship Program- Application CLOSED!

Members Only


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.

Fall 2018 – Summer 2019


  • Each group has 1 mentor and 5-7 young leaders
  • Groups mix professional backgrounds and organizations so young leaders experience the breadth of the real estate community
  • Each group meets every 4-6 weeks, on their schedule
  • Locations and topics vary according to each group’s interests, but often include:
    • informal discussions,
    • career planning,
    • project case studies,
    • social events,
    • project tours,
    • small panel discussions.


  • Small group format necessitates every young leader be fully committed to the program
  • 100% attendance and participation is expected throughout the full program year
  • Low participation may disqualify you from future program participation


Confidentiality is absolute. A breach of this trust will be treated as a resignation from the Mentorship Program.


Coordinators play a crucial role in the program by acting as a liaison with the Mentor, scheduling meetings, working to keep the group focused, and providing feedback to the Mentorship Committee. Responsibilities include:

  • Ensure that the group continues to meet on a regular basis and that each member of the group is contributing.
  • Manage scheduling of meetings and keep in touch with the mentor and other group members throughout the year.
  • Provide feedback to the Mentorship committee throughout the year.
  • If you are interested in this role please check the appropriate box on the registration form.
