Teens worldwide ♥️  TKS

TKS changes student's lives. But don't take our word for it. Here are some real reviews from TKS Innovators and alumni.

TKS has definitely been life-changing. I grew my ability to figure things out. I have a better idea of what I want to do in the world and super grateful for that. TKS toppled my assumptions about the world. It showed me that you don't need a pHd to have an impact.

Mukundh Murthy

TKS has been the game-changer that I was looking for in my life for so long. From learning about an emerging technology to building meaningful relationships that will last a lifetime, TKS is the real world brought to teenagers.

Pavi Dhiman
Aarna Arora

TKS has undoubtedly been a life-changing program. Just within a span of 5 months, I’ve grown more than I have in a total of 16 years. I’ve networked with a lot of cool people, come across a whole bunch of exciting opportunities and incorporated a growth mindset.

Nicolas Gatien

TKS really accelerated my growth as a person, it took the skills I had developed before joining + new skills I learned in the program and made me realize I can do a lot more than what I thought I could with them.

Naila Moloo

TKS was a game-changer for me and helped me discover my interests, build real projects, and learn about impactful technologies I didn’t even know existed! It also exposed me to lifelong friends and mentors who I am so grateful to have.

Eliza Aguhar

TKS literally changed my life trajectory.. TKS gave me the confidence to fail and to go down an unconventional path, while equipping me with tools I needed to succeed. Without a doubt, had I not done TKS, there is no way I would become the person I am.

TKS gave me confidence. My 2 years in the program were the perfect blend of support, mentorship and pushing my growth. One of the experiences I LOVED was the Harvard business case study Everything I accomplish during my lifetime will be because of TKS.

Samantha Ouyang

TKS made me realize that the things I used to think were so out of reach were achievable if I reframed my mindset and changed my action plan. I learned how to break down problems with first-principles thinking, leverage scientific principles to create products + more.

Aliya Ojuade

Joining TKS, in all honesty, led me to understand that there's life outside of school and continuity. I went from a daily pattern of school-home-school-home until TKS finally showed me that I could be doing more and living for more.

Zayn Patel

TKS catalyzed my growth. Year 1 exposed me to new sources of content, technologies/sciences, and mindsets that shifted how I think about the world - the people & my place in it. This program has given me the business, technical knowledge I was seeking.

Kevin Liu

The past 2 years at TKS has exponentially accelerated my growth across multiple industries , taught me the skills to start my own company,, made some of the best friends in my life and opened my eyes to what's possible today, tomorrow and years from now.
