Urban Alliance Partnership Opportunity: Diversity & Talent within Property Management
Urban Alliance is seeking property management companies to commit to hosting up to 20 Urban Alliance interns across Chicago for the 2021-2022 school year. The program intends to build a new model for finding and training diverse talent for careers in property management and leasing. Urban Alliance provides interns eight weeks of professional skills training, partners with NAA to provide eight additional weeks of industry training in leasing or maintenance and then facilitates a turnkey internship experience for partners. Employer partners make an investment of $18,000 to Urban Alliance, which funds the program, intern pay (approx. $9,500), and post program support for the interns and the employer partner. Interns earn competitive wages and raises, which are paid by Urban Alliance.
Interested partners should confirm their participation by July 31, 2021. The program training begins September and interns will begin work early in 2022.
