UrbanPlan harnesses the power of experiential learning to drive students to more deeply engage in the complex nature of land-use decisions and inspire them to take an active role as engaged citizens to create better communities.

ULI Colorado is bringing UrbanPlan to our communities! We are holding an UrbanPlan for Public Officials workshop in the fall and need members to get involved and volunteer.
If you know of any schools or communities interested in this program, please contact Hannah King.

What is UrbanPlan
UrbanPlan is a realistic, engaging exercise in which participants—high school students, university students, or public officials—learn the fundamental forces that affect development in our communities. Participants experience challenging issues, private and public sector roles, complex trade-offs, and fundamental economics in play when proposing realistic land use solutions to vexing growth challenges.
UrbanPlan thrives due to the generosity and commitment of ULI members and sponsors. Volunteering with UrbanPlan is a great way to interact with students, public officials and community members, share your subject matter expertise, and connect with fellow ULI members. More ULI members volunteer through UrbanPlan than any other ULI program. Volunteers make a huge impact in the classroom and have the flexibility to work around demands on their schedule.
Volunteer Training Requirement
Before serving as a classroom volunteer, members first participate in a required training session. This is either an in-person, day long training session, where they are assigned roles on a development team and engage in a “lightning-round” version of the exercise, or ULI offers an online course. Once trained, you are encouraged to sign-up for opportunities to volunteer in the classroom, which range from 1 to 4 hours. UrbanPlan volunteers must be ULI Members to participate.
Interested in Volunteering?
We will hold an in-person UrbanPlan volunteer training session this Summer. Contact Hannah King for more information.
