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.

Purpose, Passion & Power

per person

Looking for more meaning in your life?

Want to wake up every day feeling passionate and fulfilled?

This transformative program is about self-discovery, giving back, taking powerful action, really connecting with others, and achieving what you never thought possible.

After this epic experience, you will:

Gain more clarity on what you want in life

Connect to a greater sense of purpose

Feel powerful and confident in your life

Experience a whole new lease on life

Have an extraordinary community of like-minded individuals

What you can expect:

You’ll embark on a powerful three-month process that features an abundance of learning, dynamic self-reflection, meaningful service, and deep connection with yourself, your team, and your greater purpose.

You’ll dive deep into self-discovery through structured one-on-one and group coaching as well as during cozy fireside chats and shared meals.

During our immersive experience in the Philippines we are partnering with Alkatan Sa Costal a local organization dedicated to the literacy and well-being of children in the Camarines Norte community.  You’ll work alongside local Filipinos to build a reading centre to expand their current library allowing for more children to learn.  As a team, we will learn about their current programs and what the community needs most. From there we will develop a long-term plan to support them when we return home. You’ll be truly changing the lives of those in need ~ and there’s no better feeling than knowing you are making a real difference.

Volunteer Experience in the Philippines

UGO's partner in the Philippines is Alkatan Sa Costal, a local NGO that is striving to help improve the literacy and well-being of children by means of providing educational reading opportunities, computer training, scholarships and back-to-school programs. Since 2013, Alkatan Sa Costal has been run by volunteers with a focus on responding to the needs of the local community.  During your time in the Philippines you will be immersed in the local Filipino community while we partake in a meaningful and transformative give back project that will impact the lives of locals.
