On the Rise Exhibition & Graduation

September 7, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Join us in celebrating the exhibition and graduation of the talented participants in the ‘On the Rise’ program in 2023.


The Commercial Real Estate (CRE) Industry is a dynamic field with enormous potential for talented students interested in designing, building and managing beautiful spaces all over the globe. Historically, this industry has not been accessible to professionals with diverse backgrounds. That means it hasn’t been accessible to students, either – and as a result, we’ve missed out on incredible young talent.

In partnership with YouthCare, On the Rise program exposes BIPOC youth to the world of commercial real estate. Through specialized classes in Design, Project + Facilities Management, and Tech trades, participants gain valuable skills to pursue internships, apprenticeships, or full-time jobs.

In this course exhibition and graduation event, these young individuals will showcase their acquired skills and present on topics of their choice demonstrating their understanding of the various techniques and principles covered throughout the program. Representatives from firms with internship and apprenticeship opportunities will attend the event, providing networking opportunities for these emerging professionals.

We will also be taking this opportunity to thank all of our volunteers who made this program possible.
