Living a legendary life starts with UGO Travel for Change.
Our programs are perfect for someone who has a life-long commitment to their personal development and also yearns for a deeply immersive cultural experience while giving back. This is not an all-inclusive vacation inside a perimeter wall, but an opportunity to really experience what life is like alongside our partner charities. We vet participants for every trip to ensure we match you up with the right experience.
The Triple Change Effect
UGOs powerful programming features an abundance of dynamic self-reflection and group work, cozy fireside chats, and intimate sharing with our partner charities helping you to profoundly transform yourself, your community, and your world all at the same time.
Travel and volunteering abroad in its simplest form is a much-needed break from your routine. Having the space to think and reflect is very powerful. Before, during, and after your trip, UGO provides a life coaching framework to guide your internal journey. You will gain clarity around what changes you need to make in your life that will bring you closer to your goals, your life purpose and a greater sense of fulfillment.
Change Your Community
The people around you have a huge impact on your life. UGO helps you navigate your current relationships with your family, friends, colleagues and community that play a significant role in your happiness, sense of belonging and purpose. Our teams are small and intimate ensuring the connections you make while going through the UGO framework are deep and lasting.
Change Your World
UGO partners with local communities and charities on a sustainable long-term basis so that the time, money, and energy we commit to a project is impactful. We want to make sure money spent stays in country as a way to support the local community and economy. This means wherever possible we partner with locally owned businesses, families, and operators so we can support local families and show you what it’s like to live like a local.

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.

"Thank you for showing me the way and encouraging me to find my true passion and to pursue it. I have made friendships I know will last a long time. I look forward to going on a another UGO trip in the future."
One of my best trips ever.

I will be forever grateful!
"Thank you for an amazing trip! I will recommend UGO to everyone! What an amazing day today - I will be forever grateful for that."
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."
"Thank you for this life changing adventure. You both came into my life to help guide me and show me, through the wonderful UGO experience, what my life purpose is, and most of all gave me the confidence to move forward and finally follow a dream I've had for years. I will be forever grateful."
"Let me just say I’m so into UGO. It’s amazing and I just want to UGO forever. Thanks so much for creating this."
