Avivi
1 month Mexico City
I joined their week-long retreat without knowing much about Remote Year and coming out the other end completely different. The retreat, accommodations, culture, and most important the people is what makes the experience worth it. The retreat workshops push you to look inward and connect with yourself, while balancing the activities that helps you build connections and relationships with others. Without a doubt, Remote Year offers something priceless.
Marvin
4 month Latin America
This experience has been transformative. I have gotten the opportunity to travel to different countries and live in the shoes of the locals. Though I will never be able to live or understand their experiences, I am fortunate that I get to impact their lives in a way I would not have been able to otherwise. I have been able to make strong relationships not only with the other participants of the program but also the locals.

4 month Latin America
Remote Year is more than a trip - it’s experiencing new countries, learning about other cultures and connecting with other travelers. I’ve done a month-long trip and a retreat. Loved both experiences. Remote Year does all the work and sets up great accommodations, food and quality experiences.
