Introducing inner-city youth to a career in real estate

For the past five years, our San Francisco office has hired a student from the All Stars Project, Inc’s Development School for Youth internship programme, which provides exposure to corporate training and workshops for students aged 16-21 from underserved communities.

This summer, Aelaf Atnafu joined us over six weeks, working with our research, investment, finance and office management teams. Shadowing leadership, participating in meetings, events and workshops and new skills training all contributed to Aelaf’s experience. 

A graduate from Oakland Charter High School, Aelaf is planning to attend University of California Santa Barbara where he will major in Economics and Accounting.
