Job Opportunities

Join the APASS family! We are HIRING!

We are hiring for a Graduate Assistant (GA) to serve as an Internship Coordinator for the TIE Internship Program

The primary role of the TIE Internship Coordinator will be supporting the planning, development, and implementation of the Together In Empowerment (TIE) Internship Program in APASS. The TIE Internship Program (11-week program) seeks to help APIDA students gain insight into the APIDA community in Los Angeles and learn the importance of community empowerment and advocacy to create and impact change. The GA will be supporting the Center Supervisor to interview and place interns with a Community Based Organization (CBO) internship site placement, lead and facilitate orientation, seminars, and support students in developing their Campus Action Project (CAP). The CAP will address a key social issue in the APIDA community specifically seen or experienced at USC. The CAP should seek to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts on campus.
