Sunday Workshops

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 and students work on completing a project. After they work, students eat a dinner of pizza or burgers together and socialize with fellow techies.


Creative Tech Interns in a workshop Fall 2018

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, but interns are eligible to receive recommendations for future opportunities. Check out the featured projects below to see what our interns have worked on.
