International Affairs Education Programs

School Outreach

Ellis

For 40 years, the Council's emphasis has been in serving this region's secondary schools. 

A national award-winning school outreach program, the International Affairs Education Program continues to serve approximately 275 schools in Western Pennsylvania.

The mission of the International Affairs Education Program is to promote, among secondary school students and teachers in the region:

  • a global perspective for a global century;
  • informed and independent thinking about world affairs; and
  • critical understanding about important issues in an
    interdependent world as they affect the nation and this region.

Each year, the Council provides more than 100 programs that reach 12,500 students and teachers, helping them acquire the tools to understand a world changing substantially faster than textbooks and other materials at their disposal. 

Programs encompass a variety of formats, including visits to schools by experts and policy practitioners, briefings on topical issues, after-school seminars, day-long workshops for teachers and students, and intensive week-long summer institutes.
