Volunteer for UrbanPlan

"Until you’ve done UrbanPlan, you can’t grasp the power of the program. We senior level development professionals must step up as volunteers. The time commitment is minor; the impact is powerful - immediately and long term."
- Connie Moore, ULIsf Sponsorship Co-Chair

Volunteer for UrbanPlan

UrbanPlan thrives due to the generosity and commitment of ULI San Francisco’s members and sponsors. Volunteering with Urban Plan is a great way to interact with students, share your subject matter expertise, and connect with fellow ULI members. More ULI members volunteer through UrbanPlan than any other ULI program.

Volunteers make a huge impact in the classroom and have the flexibility to work around demands on their schedule. After attending the required one-day UrbanPlan training session offered throughout the year, volunteers may spend as little as one hour per semester in the classroom.

Volunteer Training Session

Once training is complete, volunteers will be notified throughout the year of volunteer opportunities, which range from 1 to 3 hours.

UrbanPlan volunteer training sessions are held 2-3 times per year and scheduled on a rolling basis. The next UrbanPlan trainings will be:
