At UGO we combine life changing volunteer experiences with life coaching for people who want to find clarity, more meaning, or a sense of purpose. This is anything but a traditional volunteer abroad trip. With pre trip, on trip and post trip programming, we zero in on what makes you tick or what is getting in your way, so you can get more from your life, all while connecting with and helping others.

The UGO Difference

Real Impact

Our teams give their time, energy and passion towards sustainable community led projects in partnership with our in-country partners. We ask, “What do you need?” to ensure our projects are 100% effective, creating a positive and lasting impact.

Profoundly Life-Changing

Our Transformative Travel Coaches provide you with an emotional framework that starts well before you travel abroad and lasts long after so you can create profound life change in a short time. You return home with the courage to live the life you truly want.

True Community

Our small curated teams create an intimate, supportive environment ripe for forging deep and lasting connections. Working and playing alongside the local communities you will make lasting friendships in a unique and touching way.
