Facebook: TCKidNow Facebook
Description: “The main social networking platform of TCKid that was birthed organically among a growing group of adult Third Culture Kids that were engaged in active dialogues by 2007 and grew into what became TCKid.com the following year. Countless dialogues that reflect stories of healing, growth, loss, unresolved grief, revelations, mutual discoveries, inspiration, change, personal journeys, the forging of friendships, the search for a sense of belonging and the home they found in TCKid. TCKid.com has played a large role in many individuals’ discovery of their TCK identity and therefore the first step in a journey of revelations and discoveries.”

Description: “TCK TOWN is a digital magazine that publishes stories about TCKs, for TCKs … Our articles are mainly very personal accounts of our own TCK experiences and what we’ve learned from them: we feel this is the best way to support other TCKs, rather than writing instructional content. We’re hoping to empower TCKs about your cultural backgrounds and to show you that you are not alone.”
