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 Way We Work

"More Me"


coaching program

This program is an amazing opportunity to prioritize yourself, take a breather from your everyday life, break away from expectations, and just focus on you!

It can be hard to “find yourself” in the midst of all of life’s demands.  We are constantly having to show up as a parent, partner, colleague, employee, or friend.  We rarely just get to be “me” and focus on ourselves and our needs and desires. Our More Me program gives you a chance to bring “more me” back into your life and live a life that makes you feel happy and fulfilled!

transformational travel

Transformative travel focuses on the self-reflection and self-discovery aspects of travel, and how you can incorporate the growth you’ve experienced on your trip into your day-to-day life back at home. At its core, transformative travel is all about the personal growth travel inspires and cultivates. It takes experiential travel (authentic, local, culture-centric, off the beaten path experiences) to another level by incorporating lessons, exercises, coaching and other tools for self-development during and after the journey.

Transformational Travel Coach

Meet The founder

Jill Valentine, our Transformational Travel coach believes deeply that getting away from our familiar environment and routine life gives us a ripe opportunity to gain new perspectives and gives you the time and space for deep inner reflection without all of the expectations and demands of home and work. 

Whether it’s an overnight getaway just an hour from home or a full trip abroad a flight or two away, a solo getaway can be deeply restorative and rejuvenating. UGO’s More Me is a powerfully transformative coaching program that incorporates taking a solo retreat as part of the coaching curriculum.

past participants

"The coaching Jill provided and the process of reflecting in the workbook gave me a greater sense of purpose. Coming home, I had a concrete plan on what I needed to do in order to have a true transformation occur. Four months later my business is growing, my relationships strengthened and I feel more confident in my value within the world and with those that matter most to me."
