The TKU Creative Tech Internship (CTI) is an internship for teens/young adults aged 16-21 interested in work or study in creative tech-based fields, and acts as a bridge between school experiences and workplace environments. CTI interns meet weekly September to June to work together on various deliverables for our client-based projects. Interns learn soft skills while working in an office environment and work on their social-emotional learning and transition skills. TKU seeks committed candidates who will attend the program weekly as part of a school program or who have graduated high school. *This is an unpaid internship, but students can receive credit through their school.
The Fall 2021 Deadline has passed. An application for the next cohort will be out in September 2022.
