Young Leaders Group

The mission of the ULI VirginiaYoung Leaders Group (YLG) is to create opportunities for young professionals to develop skills and build relationships that will help them advance in their careers, to help foster a connection to, and an understanding of, thoughtful land use and development practices, and to build a desire to remain active in the Virginia District Council and ULI National after they pass the Young Leader age threshold.

Young Leaders Group

The Young Leaders Group (YLG) creates a unique setting for early-career professionals and students under the age of 35 by offering opportunities for the next generation of leaders to develop skills and build relationships that will help advance their careers and foster an understanding of thoughtful development practices.

The YLG is made up of young professionals from the private and public sectors, involved in real estate development, architecture, marketing, finance, urban planning, transportation, construction, policy, and more.

The energy, enthusiasm and increased diversity that Young Leaders brings to ULI Virginia is exceptional! Young Leaders serve on nearly every committee within the District Council, including the Management Committee. The Young Leaders create and deliver monthly programs, coveted site tours, and networking socials specifically targeted to the interests of the ULI membership and early-career professionals.
