The Commercial Real Estate (CRE) Program is a 4-month training program with a focus on introducing talented BIPOC youth to the world of CRE. Classes are accompanied by panels led by top professionals in CRE, including architects, interior designers, furniture manufacturers, and more. Students will achieve a thorough understanding of the skills and tools required to start their journey into the industry with an exciting career.

The CRE Industry is a dynamic field with enormous potential for talented students interested in designing, building, and managing beautiful spaces all over the globe. This industry has often been less accessible to professionals with diverse backgrounds, but the CRE Program bridges this gap by immersing young people from historically excluded communities in the world of commercial real estate. With classes specific to design, project + facilities management, and tech trades, the program is designed to help participants achieve internships, apprenticeships, or full-time jobs.
