The steps to join a Remote Year program are simple.
- Explore and find the right program for you
Our programs range from a week to a year in length, and span across Latin America, Europe, Africa, and Asia. We have programs for remote workers, remote learners, and professionals looking for a getaway (retreats!). Start by exploring our programs, and feel free to chat or email us if you have questions.
- Complete your application
Every RY community is curated and involves an application process. As you browse our programs, please fill out an application once you find the one that is the best fit for you. We will review your application, and get back to you within 72 hours.
- Commit to a Program (Submit your Down Payment)
Once you’ve decided Remote Year is right for you, it’s time to submit your down payment to officially secure your spot on a program. When you make this first payment, it shows us your serious commitment to a program and affords us the confidence to begin booking all of your arrangements on your behalf.
Important: If you don’t currently work remotely and need support.
If your current job is not remote and you need to get official permission to participate, your Program Consultant can connect you to our Enterprise Solutions team. This specialized team will work with you one-on-one to help you pitch Remote Year to your employer so they feel confident in your ability to thrive both personally and professionally while traveling. They are pros at overcoming all of the concerns managers or HR may haven when it comes to working and traveling. Learn More→
