Plus, we've found great local cafes and restaurants to use as Sojrn Spaces - places you're always welcome to pop into for a chat, to get some work done, or grab a bite to eat with other Chapter members.

Bathrooms are often rarely shared with more than one person. If you would like to guarantee having your own apartment, please select private accommodation when booking. Your home away from home will always come furnished, inclusive of:

  • Wireless internet
  • All utilities
  • Basic kitchenware
  • Sheets and bath towels
If you book private accommodations with someone (shared bed), the second person gets 50% off of their Sojrn.

We have also created partnerships with local businesses to create Sojrn Spaces - places you can pop into for reliable wifi, familiar faces, and a bite to eat. (Think Central Perk in Friends)




Meals


Besides the two group meals at the beginning and end of your stay, there is no set meal plan so you are free to eat what you want, when you want. Your Chapter guide will include a list of recommendations for grocery shopping and restaurants.

In-destination budgets vary depending upon your personal spending habits when it comes to food, travel, local adventures and other personal expenses. It is possible to live in Mexcio city very cheaply if you're making most of your meals at home. We would suggest a minimum additional budget of $800 for the full 4 weeks for thrify spenders. However, if you plan on doing multiple optional activities and eating at restaurants for most of your stay, budget at least $1,800. Example pricing for Mexico

  • Typical Breakfast: $6
  • Typical lunch: $10
  • Tasty dinner: $20

Covid-19


The health and safety of our customers is always our top priority. Each Chapter will have clear Covid-19 guidelines in place based on local requirements. As local ordinances are being updated regularly, we will share Sojrn policies closer to the program start date. We reserve the right to update these on an ongoing basis per the available data and recommendations of local authorities. For more information on our COVID protocols, please visit our FAQ page.




Online Portal


A month before your Sojrn, you will be invited to an online hub where you can connect with chaptermates, meet your local host, and get access to the Chapter Guide, which has all the information you need to have a successful Sojrn. Through this online hub, you can also book optionals and access resources that will supplement your learning.

Every chapter has a local host on hand throughout the 4 weeks of the Chapter with the aim of making sure you have everything you need to have a relaxing, productive and inspiring time in your temporary home.
