Kaya Online Programs
While nothing can replace the in-person experience, we understand that travel isn’t always possible for a number of reasons. We do hope you make it to your host country one day soon, but in the meantime we can help you develop important cross-cultural skills, learn the language, engage with locals, and build your global network virtually through virtual mobility.
For students and other individuals with an interest in other cultures, we offer a host of opportunities for remote study abroad, virtual internships or virtual work placements, online language learning, cultural exchange, and even gap years if you are thinking of taking a break in between studies or jobs. You will be ready and well prepared to hop on a plane when that day comes!
For academic institutions, Kaya brings the world to your classroom and can support your campus internationalization goals. Choose from our menu of engaging remote cultural programs and collaborative online international learning to enhance your curriculum. From cultural workshops and local buddy chats to remote field projects with international organizations and even unique gap year programming to help retain students, we’ve got you covered!
Why go remote with Kaya?
With more than a decade of experience in responsible travel and cultural engagement, you can trust your experience will benefit both you AND the host community.
We do remote in remote locations – or more accurately, the off the beaten path travel destinations. We work exclusively in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Oceania.
We work year-round with local teams and communities in the country, so we come with a vast network of experts, local leaders, and cultural connections on the ground.
We get that one size does not fit all. Think of us as your advocate, friend, or extension of your team. We want to understand your goals to find the best match.
We are flexible and hope you are too! We recognize that technology and time zones can cause challenges, but we are here to help you navigate every step of the way.
Also known as virtual internships or online internships, our placements in Ecuador, Morocco, South Africa and Vietnam are combined with cultural workshops and local buddy connections so you can learn the culture from those who know best – the locals.
