Transition Seminar

Teen TCK Cross-Cultural Transitions

Inviting all teenage TCKs in transition (to passport country, to high school, to university, etc.) to spend a week in Colorado Springs, Colorado with us and other global nomads exploring how to navigate the challenges, benefits and opportunities of the cross-cultural transition process. See how your TCK background provides an important foundation on which to build the skills you will use your entire life. This seminar is an intentional, practical, and critical week that supports TCKs in their understanding of identity, belonging, and purpose. We have group sessions, small group meetings, and one-on-one counseling throughout the week. With about 30 to 40 participants at the seminar, we are able to get to know one another well and enjoy keeping in touch post-seminar!

Daily Sessions

Morning and afternoon sessions include learning about unique aspects of TCK identity, discussing transition issues, and preparing for what’s next after the seminar through lectures, experiential learning activities, and discussions. There will be time to share in small groups and one-on-one with staff. All of our staff have lived and worked abroad and have mentored TCKs in varying capacities. We encourage you to connect with these experienced staff and special guest speakers who have a heart to encourage and equip you. You will leave with new insights, affirmed for the unique and valuable person that you are.

Camp Activities Between Sessions

Each day there are a variety of camp activities such as ziplining, rock wall climbing, volleyball, swimming, football (aka soccer), and rappelling. There are also hiking trails to explore. If you prefer to hang out indoors, we will have games to play, crafts to do, and lounge areas to relax in. Look forward to hanging out with new friends as you share about your story.

Excursion Day

We will go off-site one day for experiential learning opportunities in the Colorado Springs area. Enjoy the novelty of riding all together in a U.S. American yellow school bus!

Are YOU ready to thrive in your transition?

Are you ready not just to survive, but to really thrive? For almost 30 years, Interaction International has been answering that question by preparing adolescent Third Culture Kids/TCKs and MKs, like you, through our Transition Seminars. The content is designed to be interactive, fun, insightful and if applicable, healing.

At the seminar, you’ll find a safe place to work through issues, talk about what’s on your heart and celebrate your heritage with like-minded friends. You’ll come away affirmed, encouraged and empowered as a unique, valuable person, to make choices that will enable you to have a profound impact on this world.

Primary seminar speakers include Interaction staff: Michael Pollock, Sheryl O’Bryan, Megan Norton, and Bret Taylor. Additional staff include TCK consultants who mentor, coach, and speak globally on TCK identity. We are excited to meet you!
