Get involved! Make a Difference!

Each semester, over 120 USC students team-teach in local high school classrooms. Volunteers take the opportunity to “learn best by teaching” and become part of honored Trojan traditions: public service, community engagement and socially relevant scholarship.

TIRPers Talk Back!  Listen. Join. Share the passion...

 Many thanks to these volunteers who were asked to give feedback about their TIRP experiences. May 2013


Trojan Horse

Calling all Trojans!

Professors in the School of International Relations offer credit options in their courses for TIRP outreach.

Professors across USC departments support TEP outreach.

Globalization and Ethics are strategic topics among USC academic initiatives... Ask your professors if they are willing to support a service-learning credit option in their courses for TIRP or TEP.

CALIS recruits high school teachers to offer one of their classes, usually from the required social science program of 10th grade World History, 11th grade U.S. History, or 12th grade Government/Economics.

The teacher selects a topic and reviews each session with regard to the team's level of preparation, use of active learning strategies, and the class level of engagement.

Every outreach volunteer writes a report for each of the four teaching sessions to describe the content and analytical tools, and how students responded.

Reports are posted to a webboard and reviewed for approval by CALIS staff - who are themselves USC students and IR majors.

In the USC tradition of leadership & innovation...

CALIS and TIRP earned national recognition from the
Goldman Sachs Foundation Prizes for Excellence in International Education
for effective design and use of analytical tools in a program run by students for students
