The Basics

What kind of people participate in Remote Year?

Remote Year participants are diverse in every aspect. From differences in age (currently, program members range in age from 22-65) to home country (there are currently 40 countries of origin represented on Remote Year programs), it is difficult to put Remote Year participants into a box. Some are full-time employees of an organization, while others own their own business or have freelance clientele. Some have traveled extensively before Remote Year, while others will be embarking on their first longterm journey.

That being said, there is a commonality between every Remote Year participant - they value community, have open minds and hold an appreciation for new perspectives.
