What customers say
Jessica - RY Balboa Program
Graphic Designer
“I lived in 20+ countries, met 200+ amazing new people, and have countless memories around the world. I’d have to say this was THE BEST YEAR OF MY LIFE.”
Kelly - RY Cousteau Program
Associate Editor
“Remote Year took my entire life and turned it upside-down (in the best way). There’s no such thing as a “typical 9-to-5” here. Every day, I learned more about the world and its people. Every day brought something new. If I could rewind and live the whole thing again, I’d do it in a heartbeat.”
Tasha - RY Kanyini Program
Analyst
“I remember the days I prayed for things I have now. While I still have a long way to go, I never thought I'd be working remotely and seeing the world at this stage in my life. I'm finally happy with where I am and where I am going."
Justin - RY Balboa Program
Freelance Animator
“I've spent the last year of my life living out a suitcase and traveling to over 20 countries with a group of 45 amazing individuals. I've made countless memories and gotten to see places I couldn't have even imagined. BUT, after a year of travel... I've realized that traveling is often not about the places. Traveling is about the people.”
Steph - RY Kanyini Program
Tech Recruiter
“It's both confronting and comforting to realise you don't have to sacrifice the things you want in life to maintain a good career or job reputation. You don't have to have that traditional job that locks you in an office for 70% of your week. Challenge yourself and take advantage of the opportunity."
Bianca - RY Abeona Program
Digital Strategist
“Traveling with Remote Year was such a big deal for me. It is so hard for us to dream big because of our current circumstances. Doing this program was only the beginning of my travel journey and I cannot wait to continue to explore the rest of the world.”
Rich - RY Kanyini Program
Executive Producer
“I’ve met so many new people. Learned about different cultures and religions. Tasted so many new foods. Heard new music and sounds. My views about life have changed so drastically. The steps towards my end goals may be steep, but it’s so necessary towards growth and evolution to become the best I can be.”
Chimdi - RY Curie Program
Director
“RY is like mainlining 10 years of adventure and personal growth. What I learned about myself and about the world has fundamentally reshaped my world view. By highlighting my own and other diverse perspectives in my videography, I am hopefully helping more people see themselves as capable of international travel.”
Jeanette - RY Genesis Program
Founder & CEO
“I was able to still do what I love, make a living, yet live my life for me. I continue to work hard, I just discovered different settings to do it in and realized that the “go, go, go” lifestyle will fail you if you don’t take moments to stop and “listen to the music”.
Erin - RY Bourdain Program
Content Manager
“I've spent the last year of my life living out a suitcase and traveling to over 20 countries with a group of 45 amazing individuals. I've made countless memories and gotten to see places I couldn't have even imagined. BUT, after a year of travel... I've realized that traveling is often not about the places. Traveling is about the people.”
