Volunteer for UrbanPlan
Volunteer Interest Form
Submit an interest form to receive the link for our online, on-demand UrbanPlan volunteer training. Once you complete the training, you’ll be sent a questionnaire to capture your volunteer preferences. Upon completion of this questionnaire, you’ll be added to our volunteer list and will receive emails regarding volunteer opportunities!
Make an impact in the future of land use and join the ranks of ULI UrbanPlan volunteers that have reached over 30,000 high school and university students across the country since 2003 by completing an interactive, on-demand online training!
The training will prepare you to assist high school and college 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 used discussion.
If you have land use experience, the patience to question rather than advise, the time and willingness to learn the details of the UrbanPlan “case,” and are familiar with city council and/or planning commission meetings, we encourage you to volunteer! After completing the training module, we’ll send you a link where you can sign up to volunteer at in-person and virtual classrooms at local Bay Area Schools. You can volunteer for as little as one class period per school year or as many as you’d like.
Volunteering with UrbanPlan is a great way to interact with students, share your subject matter expertise, and connect with fellow ULI members and land use experts. 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.
