Virtual Summer Workshops
During the Summer from June 28 – August 20, students ages 7-21 learn various topics in weeklong workshops. You can register for as few or many workshops as you’d like. There is also morning and afternoon workshops. Each virtual workshop contains a social worker, master tech teacher, and a high tech counselor to student ratio to ensure a supportive environment. All levels are welcome for this fun learning program! All workshops are currently virtual and will take place via Zoom. Questions? See our Summer FAQ here or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Over 60% of our students are on financial aid and it is not solely based on income. If the cost is a barrier for you, we are here to help! We also take self-direction and 3rd party payments.
Our Sunday programs are for students ages 7-21 who would like to learn a new tech skill or build on tech skills they know. Each Sunday is a different topic which allows for students to dive into a variety of topics! All Sunday programs are currently virtual and meet via Zoom.

Creative Tech Internship (CTI)
The TKU Creative Tech Internship (CTI) is an internship for teens/young adults aged 17-21 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. This program is currently meeting virtually on Zoom.
