I never knew how much one country could impact my life. And though it’s been only a year, I have already collected an immeasurable amount of memories and experiences that can never be replaced. When my dad confirmed the move, the first thing I thought was “I’ll either love it or hate it.”

The WBFN Youth Program Committee (YPC) was formed to provide both parents and their children the opportunity to get support, share resources and experiences, and learn strategies for successful transitions.

This non-profit organization has shipped nearly three million books to some 100 countries over a period of 30 years and has both volunteers and visitors eager to learn about its founders and how the idea was conceived.

Third culture kid, or TCK, is a term used to describe a person who is from one culture (culture #1) but who has spent a significant part of his or her youth in another culture (culture #2), resulting in a new cultural identity (culture #3).
