YLG Mentor Program (Applications Now Open)
Currently in its ninth year, the ULI SF YLG Mentor Program has provided over 750 Young Leaders with mentorship and career support.
Each mentor group consists of 5 to 7 YLG members with an interest or experience in similar product types or sectors. Each group is led by one mentor. Mentor groups are expected to meet for one year, 4 to 6 times (minimum). Meetings can include: lessons learned from a mentor’s career, discussing career goals, case studies, social events, project tours, guest speakers, or anything else mutually agreed upon to further the relationship among the group.
Every applicant must be committed to the Mentor Program in order to create the type of atmosphere necessary for success. Attendance and participation in each meeting for a full year is expected.
Confidentiality is absolute, in all ways and forever. A breach in confidentiality will be treated as a resignation from the Mentor Program.
Mentees should have a clear idea of what they want to achieve through the Mentor Program, whether that be obtaining career advice or learning from their peers and mentor about specific issues in their sector. Each mentee must take responsibility for facilitating (help determine agendas, coordinate schedules, etc.) at least one meeting. This role is crucial to taking the scheduling work off of the mentor’s hands and keeping the group together.
Applications for the 2018-2019 program are open and can be found here. Please note that applications will close on June 15th.
Participation in the 2018-19 Mentor Program costs $100 for YLG members. This is a members-only program.
