Our Vision & Mission

Our Vision

To collaboratively ignite global transformational movements for the care and equipping of the Third Culture Kid (TCK) community.

Our Mission

Interaction International collaborates and networks to provide a quality flow of care for the global TCK community; this is accomplished by a worldwide strategy of developing services and resources, providing curriculum and training, and advocating for the needs and potential of TCKs.

"What’s a Third Culture Kid?

A third culture kid is an individual who, having spent a significant part of their development years in a culture other than their parents’ home culture, develops a sense of relationship to all of the cultures, while not having full ownership in any. Elements from each culture are incorporated into the life experience, but the sense of belonging is in relationship to others of similar experience."
- David C. Pollock
