The Year On Experience

Be prepared. For wherever life takes you.

This year, we’ve made some program enhancements to provide as much flexibility as possible.


The Year Experience is a multi-phase program where students explore and volunteer in the US, focus on their interests and build skills in San Francisco, and launch themselves into the “real world” with the support of their Year On coaches and community.



The Semester Experience is designed for students who want to have a big impact, build new skills, and add competencies effectively and conveniently from anywhere in the world. This 15-week program  combines practical experiences and skill building with the support of a coach and community of learners.



Flexible Experiences are our new series of shorter, stand-alone skill-building programs specifically built for the online environment with a focus on maximizing peer-to-peer community. These fast track programs can be also be taken consecutively to create a full-stack experience that helps students sharpen essentials skills and move forward with confidence.
