San Francisco UrbanPlan Training (Spring 2019)
Your Spring 2019 opportunity to be trained as an UrbanPlan volunteer has come! Participate in one of the volunteer trainings on either February 1st in Downtown San Francisco or February 8th in Palo Alto and join the ranks of ULI UrbanPlan volunteers that have reached over 20,000 high school and university students across the country since 2003. Make an impact in the future of land use by attending a one-day training. It will prepare you to assist students who are learning the essence of development: how the forces of our market economy clash and collaborate with the non-market forces of our representative democracy to create the built environment – providing the foundation required for any informed land use discussion. You must participate in the training in order to volunteer in the classroom. After the one day training, you can volunteer for as little time as one class period per school year or as much as you are able to do it.
If you have development project experience, the patience to question rather than advise or coach, the time and willingness to learn the details of the UrbanPlan “case,” and are familiar with city council and/or planning commission meetings, you’re just who we are looking for!
To be considered for upcoming training opportunities, please submit an application and your resume using the link here: Volunteer Application. Applications for the upcoming sessions will be accepted on a rolling basis until January 11th. You can expect to hear back on your admittance to the training by January 18th.
There is no cost to attend the training.
