International Trade Education Programs (ITEP) is a Southern California 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides brighter futures. Through partnerships with ports, transportation, logistics, and related industries, ITEP prepares high school students for diverse career opportunities in high-growth job sectors. We develop innovative programs that integrate internships and career mentoring with the curriculum of high schools throughout Southern California. Volunteers from local businesses offer students the insights, skills, and confidence to thrive in the growing economy. Students build context between their studies and the real world through hands-on learning and carry that experience with them into the workplace.
