Discover how 1890 10K Diversity and Inclusion Workforce Development Program (DIWDP) is dedicated to tackling the significant lack of diversity within the realty/appraising profession, which currently ranks as one of the least diverse professions in the country, as highlighted by the Department of Labor Statistics. We are on a mission to introduce diversity into realty and appraising, particularly within government spaces where representation is currently non-existent. Explore our vision, which emphasizes creating employment opportunities across all levels of government and the private sector while ensuring equitable representation and inclusion.
Our target demographic includes individuals aged 16-25. Our program offers summer internships of $750/week for 10 weeks, along with a $1,000 living expenses allowance. After completing the course curriculum, students will receive a stipend ranging from $40,000 to $50,000 in their first year to support them as they gain proficiency.
Our program’s structure seamlessly integrates online classes with hands-on experience on real properties in participants’ local areas. Students are matched with experienced mentors after completing the course curriculum. The 1890 Program ensures equitable opportunities by initially accepting three students from each of the 1890 schools, with plans to incrementally increase intake in subsequent years.
Our continuous recruitment efforts are strategically executed through partnerships with renowned organizations such as the Urban League, NAACP, churches, libraries, and community centers. Contact us if interested in collaboration with our 2024 1890 Campus Tour.
