What Is YOL?
YOL, Turkish for “the road,” offers transformative reboot experiences for high-performers, teams and individuals all over the world. Think of YOL experiences as “resets” that touch participants on many meaningful levels — physical, mental, spiritual and a desire to give back to organizations in need.
Our focus is on engagement and resilience—getting people to shed stress, improve effectiveness, expand their mind and reconnect with themselves and humanity.
YOL supports personal purpose-finding and promotes professional growth, inspiration and improved productivity. We also work with esteemed partners that can extend or expand your YOL experience both within and beyond the trip.
In addition, YOL works hand in hand with local community-based organizations and NGOs on issues of poverty, health and environmental preservation. We cultivate long-term partnerships and skill transfers between our participants and members of the community.

I can’t imagine anyone leaving here and not feeling more connected to themselves, more passionate about what their work is and more ready to go.Karen Hershenson, Director, Clay Street Project, Procter & Gamble
The YOL team arranged a perfect balance of fitness, health, relaxation and community. I was so impressed with every aspect, and most of all with the incredible people I met on the trip. What a special group of people who are all looking for a great experience!Jessika Borsiczky, Executive Producer, Showtime’s House of Lies
It was an outstanding trip with a great bunch of people. I was asked to describe the trip for (my company’s) website. And of course that just extended the trip mentally for me just a bit longer, stretching that soul-satisfying feeling a few more days.Robert Mayer, Senior Systems Specialist, Genentech
I believe in the healing and transformative powers of mind, body and service experiences. For people in the working world, what YOL is offering is an opportunity to rejuvenate, give back to themselves, contribute responsibly, uplift communities and work hand-in-hand with host communities, having fun, creating social and economic solutions where there is a real need for assistance.Lisa Rueff Schneider, Executive Director, Michael Franti’s Do It For The Love Foundation

Forget Me Not Farm, Santa Rosa, CA
Since 1992, Forget Me Not Farm has helped thousands of at-risk children and youth break the cycle of abuse. The farm offers animal-assisted and horticultural therapeutic activities that provide a haven for children, plants and animals to bond, learn and heal with one another. YOL volunteers are laying the groundwork for Forget Me Not Farm’s first Farm Stand: a project providing employment training and opportunities to at-risk foster youth from harvest to sales.
Thanks for looking. We’d love to hear from you.
