TCK connect

TCK Connect

Third Culture Kids can often feel alone and misunderstood. We're here to change that.

Join from all over the world and connect with others who just get you.

Virtual connection is real connection.  You can build friendships with other TCKs your own age via our Zoom platform. Join a call with our staff and fellow TCKs to simply talk, tell your story, and have a good time!  If you’re feeling disconnected from people like you, this is part of the remedy.

"I have to admit, at first I was terrified at the idea of going to Connect. I did not know what anyone was going to be like, or what I should say or do. My first Connect meeting was all it took for me to feel comfortable there. It was nice getting to know other kids who were like me. I felt like I could be open and be myself there."

TCK ages 12-18

Our teen Connect groups get together on Thursday evenings from 7:30 pm to 9 pm EST and on Friday mornings from 9:30 am to 11 am EST. We typically begin with an interactive game before breaking into small groups for individual check-ins. We’re all about fun and friendship–and maybe a little friendly competition for those who thrive on that sort of thing.  If you’re not competitive, don’t worry–there’s plenty to laugh about while watching those who are.

It’s not uncommon to have people from five continents join at one time!  From the mountains of Asia to the plains of Europe–and all points in between–TCKs join us every Friday for some fun and some time to lay the building blocks of friendships.  Join us!

TCK College and Career age

Every Tuesday from 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm EST our college and career age TCKs check in with one another. Conversations range from the silly to the soulful.  We love both!

From beginning college  or your first job to being a few years into your career, starting your adult life can be confusing and overwhelming. It can also feel isolating because you’re more cut off from your people than ever before.

You aren’t alone!  You’re not alone in feeling that way.  You don’t need to be alone in any of it.  Join us.  Meet other TCKs who may become your new BFFs.  We’re waiting for you!
