The Foundation for Affordable Housing (“FFAH”) is honored to partner with The Ross Minority Program in Real Estate at the University of Southern California. The partnership will expand opportunity and inclusivity across the affordable housing industry.
The Ross Program is an educational platform that provides critical skills and offers graduates the opportunity to establish a pathway for success within the real estate industry. Its mission is to expand the pool of talented professionals and establish a foundation toward becoming leaders in real estate finance and development. The Program brings individuals from a variety of backgrounds together to solve complex real estate challenges, and the course fosters personal growth and insight, which positively impacts any company’s bottom line.
Darrin Willard, President of The Foundation for Affordable Housing and USC alumnus, has recently announced that FFAH has provided a donation to The USC Ross Minority Program that will provide scholarships to allow more students to take advantage of all that the program has to offer.
A recent graduate of the program and FFAH staff member, Jason Acosta, highlights “The program was a first-class learning experience. Students are required to complete an intense curriculum in real estate development over the course of several weeks. The session concludes with a team case study project allowing students to apply and integrate what they’ve learned in a “real world” housing development opportunity.”
FFAH is truly honored to serve as a sponsor to The Stan & Marilyn Ross Minority Program in Real Estate.
