Flourish wherever you are
Crossing Cultures can be an amazing experience but is also a significant challenge.The circumstances and locations of that journey can be very different but the psychological experience and cycle of transition can be very similar. As David C. Pollock and Ruth E. Van Reken suggested in their pioneering book: “Third Culture Kids, Growing Up Among Worlds”, those who are introduced to terms like “global nomad”, “ TCK - Third Culture Kid/Adult” and “Cross Cultural Kid/Adult”, feel understood. We are here to support that journey. We very much believe that a commonality amongst all these different cultures, genders and communities is the right to play sports. As Albert Einstein, famously quoted” Play is the Highest Form of Research”; all people have the right to grow and learn through playing sports.

These sessions can be offered to reinforce and support the transition to a new destination. The sessions provide an opportunity to discuss the expected challenges and set goals to work through the adaptation process and increase success in the new environment.
In many instances, it is the most critical component in the success of an overseas assignment. Coaching sessions can provide the possibility to change the expected challenges into opportunities. Effective adaptations for partners are more likely to succeed when there is knowledge of the possible challenges and a meaningful plan for personal growth.
One of the most unspoken challenges of the nomad life is the moment that many expats fear, returning to their home country, and being left out of the supportive expat bubble.

We are delighted to share this beautiful article by a young ATCK. With her sensitive words, she describes how she grows up in a physical third world- within the walls - a place that was not exactly Russia or USA. How being the “stayer” in a world of constant change affected her. And finally, how does it feel when you come back to a very familiar place where you recognize everything but it doesn’t recognize you. Enjoy it! Thank you Alexa VujaklijaRead More
