The NAR Spire Mentorship Program aims to spark interest in the industry among mentees from all backgrounds by providing expert guidance and access to career opportunities and generational wealth-building.
The National Association of REALTORS® is proud to present this new initiative as an opportunity specifically targeting multi-cultural, minority communities, toward building bridges to the holistic real estate community.
This mentorship opportunity will help individuals learn the fundamentals of the real estate industry, foster education, inspire consideration of real estate as a career path and encourage the development of generational wealth through property ownership.
MAAR is excited to announce our participation in the program in 2022. We are seeking members to serve as mentors. Ideal candidates are those who are motivated to strengthen our profession, give back, refine their own skills and shape the future.
We are also interested in potential mentees. If you know of anyone who has an interest in real estate as a profession but is not yet licensed, you can encourage them to apply to be a mentee. Interested mentees may complete the Find a Future in Real Estate module to learn about the industry and determine a prospective career path.
The program will last from July to October 2022. As part of the program, mentors will encourage mentees interested in a sales role to pursue their license. The time commitment for mentors is 4–8 hours a month and mentors must also attend two live educational sessions.
Applications for both mentors and mentees are open through May 31. We advise that all applicants review the Mentorship Program Overview, including the program's activities and events, and participation requirements before applying.
