Raleigh International's Summer Program (4, 7 and 10 weeks) in Tanzania is a unique opportunity to volunteer in a country with exotic wildlife, rich cultures, friendly people, Mount Kilimanjaro - Tanzania has all these and more.

Raleigh International offers Expeditions in Tanzania for 17-24 year olds from June to August 2020.

Raleigh Expedition

Raleigh Expedition is an international volunteering program, open to all and engaging young people from around the world. Expedition is one of four programs delivered by the youth-driven development charity, Raleigh International.

Raleigh Expedition is one of the first UK programs accredited by the Gap Year Association (GYA).

It's a real volunteer experience you will never forget. Real people, real projects, real change! Be part of a global movement of youth leaders; to conserve and protect the environment; and work alongside communities on the issues they face.

Our volunteers report that the program raises their aspirations, builds their confidence, broadens their horizons and outlook, helps develop character and resilience, supports better academic performance and employability, and inspires further volunteering and active citizenship.

How does the Expedition program work?

Students can volunteer in Tanzania for 4, 7 or 10 weeks. The program engages students (aged 17-24) in creating long lasting change on community, environmental and adventure leadership projects. These projects help tackle environmental issues, access to education for all, and alleviate poverty.

During the Expedition, students will participate in up to three different projects, dependent on the length of time they volunteer for.

• Work with local schools to develop their sanitationand toilet facilities and improve attendance on theCommunity project.

• Help tackle reforestation in protected areas on the Environmental project.

• Get away from the tourist trail as you trek through the Southern Highlands on the Adventure Leadership Trek.

• Live in a host home with other volunteers and work with young people and community leaders.

How long can I go for?

10 weeks - The 10 week program is the most immersive Expedition. You will get the opportunity to take part in 3 different projects (Community, Environmental and Adventure Leadership Trek), in 3 different locations, with 3 different groups.

7 weeks - If you don’t have as much time, the 7 week program is a great option. You will do 2 different projects, in 2 different locations, with 2 different groups.

4 weeks - You will work on 1 project and go on a shorter Adventure Leadership Trek.
