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.

I felt I could tackle anything!

"The UGO experience is so much more than an opportunity to do volunteer work abroad. The UGO coaches create a comfortable and supportive atmosphere for personal growth, while also fostering real and deep connections with the other participants. I left the trip feeling like I could tackle anything, with the backing of my support team of new friends."

Investing in UGO was an investment in myself.

"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."
