Applications for the 2020-21 Mentor Program are now open!
Currently in its tenth year, the ULI SF YLG Mentor Program has provided over 900 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 at least 4 to 6 times over the course of a year. 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.
This year’s mentor program will kick-off in a virtual format. As the public health situation improves and regulations allow, groups can decide on their own if they would like to do socially distanced meetings in-person
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.
Please note the there will be a mandatory 2020-21 Mentor Program virtual kickoff event on the evening of October 1. All Mentor Program participants will be required to attend this kickoff.
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 ULI SF’s 2020 – 21 YLG Mentor Program are now open. Applications are due by August 28th.
Participation in the 2020-21 Mentor Program costs $130 for private sector and $50 for public/nonprofit sector YLG members. We understand that the current situation has financially impacted everyone differently. If the registration payment poses a challenge for you at this time, please reach out to Casey Pond to discuss possible options.
