Overview

What is a Raleigh International expedition?

Our expeditions are a challenging journey, designed to inspire young people and rural communities to work together and achieve positive change.

Our projects take place three times a year in four countries around the globe, and last either 4, 5, 7 or 10 weeks – so you can choose one that fits in with your plans.

You can work in Costa Rica & Nicaragua, Nepal or Tanzania – a chance to explore some of the most spectacular and remote places on earth!

During the expedition, volunteers will usually participate in up to three different project phases:

Community development

Experience cultures unlike any you've known before. On your community project you'll help tackle poverty, whilst becoming immersed in a new and fascinating culture. You might be living in homestays with indigenous communities in Borneo. You could provide access to safe drinking water for a Tanzanian village. You'll see and learn far more than you could as a tourist, and you'll have a lasting impact on the lives of community members.

Environmental conservation

You'll live and work in some of the earth's most remote and vulnerable environments. You could be building a dam halfway up a mountain in Malaysian Borneo, sleeping in a hammock strung between two hardwood trees. You could be helping combat deforestation in the Nicaraguan rainforest. Whatever your project, we can guarantee that you'll be making a genuine difference.

Adventure trek

Finish your programme with the adventure of a lifetime. Push yourself far beyond your comfort zone, whilst knowing that we'll support you every step of the way. The adventure phase of your expedition is all about developing life skills like leadership, teamwork and resilience. You and your team will trek up mountain peaks, through unspoiled forests and past stunning waterfalls. Trek is where many of our volunteers forge friendships that last a lifetime.

To give you peace of mind...

Raleigh expeditions are challenging and exciting. They're a chance for you to gain skills that you can't learn at school, and experiences that are completely unique. They're also extremely safe and supportive.

At Raleigh, we have over 30 years' experience of working with young people, and our history of volunteering dates back to members of the British royal family. We have permanent trained staff in every country in which we operate, so that you can access support 24 hours a day whilst you're overseas.

I had the best 7 weeks of my life in Tanzania in summer 2016 with Raleigh! My first phase was the trek, which was challenging but incredibly rewarding. I gained leadership and teamwork skills, made great friendships and the landscapes were beautiful. Next, I was part of the SWASH (School Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) project. This involved living with a host family in a small village, and working in the local primary school. I helped to construct a sanitation block for the female students, and I also participated in raising awareness of improved hygiene practices, aimed at the students as well as other members of the community. It was so fulfilling to be able to make a difference and to learn about the Tanzanian culture. I would definitely recommend a Raleigh Expedition to anyone who is interested!
