Currently in its eleventh year, the ULI SF YLG Mentor Program has provided over 900 Young Leaders with mentorship and career support.
Each mentor group consists of five to seven 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 five to seven 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.
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 2021-22 Mentor Program virtual kickoff event on the evening of September 29 (this event will likely be in-person, outdoors, in San Francisco). 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.
