Newmark Associates has announced a partnership with the Newark Board of Education to launch a mentorship program next summer for city high school students interested in careers in commercial real estate.
“We at Newmark are very much aware of and acknowledge that mentorships make a difference in reducing economic divide, impacting generational wealth gaps and increasing equal access to opportunity,” said Susanne Newmark, president of Newmark Associates, a leading commercial real estate firm and longtime NBIA member.
“Together with the Newark Board of Education we aim to bridge the gap between classroom education and real-world experience by offering mentorships to aspiring students interested in the field of commercial real estate,” she said.
The program will provide practical experience in commercial real estate through one-on-one mentorship with industry experts. Students will have access to an extensive network of professionals in the field, opening doors for potential future career opportunities.
Newmark said the initiative needs businesses leaders who are committed to education and community development to participate in the program and help make a significant impact on the lives and future careers of Newark students.
“If you or your company are interested in becoming a mentor for a three-week period during the summer of 2024, please reach out to Newmark Associates at 973-884-4444 for further information,” Newmark said. “Join us in making a difference and shaping the future of Newark’s youth through mentorship.”
