On July 6-17, SIOR and the SIOR Foundation will sponsor the upcoming 2020 REEX Summer Program. The program, a collaborative effort between Real Estate Executive Council (REEC) and LEADership, Education and Development (LEAD), offers an incredible opportunity to high school students that will expose them to the amazing intersection between the $14+ trillion commercial real estate (CRE) industry and the fundamentals of business, engineering, technology, and entrepreneurship.
The 10-day program includes both academic and experience-intensive curricula created to expose teens of color to leading universities and business opportunities. During this academic immersion experience, scholars will engage with top academic faculty and professionals in the commercial real estate industry at Baker Program for Real Estate (Cornell University), Center for Real Estate (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), and Herbert Business School (University of Miami). Scholars will participate in experiential learning activities through both hands-on instruction, case studies, virtual site visits, and competitive pitch presentations—challenging themselves to identify and develop industry enterprise ideas designed to make meaningful change in the world.
