Raleigh Expedition is an international volunteering program open to all and engaging young people from around the world.
We believe young people have the power to change the world. So we run overseas volunteering programs for young people aged 17-24 to ignite their passion for change and equip them with the skills, networks and confidence to become youth leaders.
Our Raleigh Nepal Expedition program encompasses two different projects, that combined give our volunteers the opportunity to create change in themselves as well as in the environments and communities where we work.
Raleigh Expedition is one of the first UK programs to be accredited by the Gap Year Association (GYA) and recognized by TeenLife as a Top 15 Most Popular Gap Program in 2020.

Challenge and equip yourself with new skills on the Adventure Leadership Trek by trekking through the spectacular Ruby Valley.
