Raleigh International is a sustainable development charity. Over the past 30 years, we’ve supported over 40,000 young people on our programmes and it’s now your chance to be one of them.

What could I be doing?

Our expeditions aren’t holidays. A Raleigh expedition gives you the opportunity to work on remote community and environmental projects and face adventure challenges in some of the most incredible areas of the world. You can join an expedition for 5, 7 or 10 weeks.



Depending on which country you choose and how long you go for, you could be working on:

  • A community project where you’ll be living and working alongside local people, providing them with access to safe water and sanitation or health and education facilities
  • An environmental project where you’ll be helping to preserve the country’s wildlife and natural environments, promoting sustainable livelihoods.
  • An adventure project where you’ll be taking part in an adrenaline-fueled trek, hiking through incredible landscapes, learning about wildlife and meeting rural communities, whilst also developing your leadership skills


Who can take part?
We need volunteers aged between 17 and 24. If you’re 16, you can apply as long as you turn 17 whilst on programme. This is an international programme, so we welcome and encourage applications from all around the world.

25 - 75?
Become a volunteer manager. We’re looking for anyone aged 25 - 75 to lead and support our expeditions.

Why volunteer with Raleigh?

We have over 30 years’ experience of bringing together young people and communities to create lasting and meaningful change. Safety is at the heart of everything we do and all volunteers receive full training. We’re a charity, so the money you fundraise goes back into the programmes and communities we work with.


We talk about fundraising rather than costs.

We know fundraising can be overwhelming but we are here to help you every step of the way. Don’t be daunted! We’ve supported thousands of young people, from all different backgrounds to reach their target. Take a look at our website to find out more about fundraising targets.

If you think you’ve got what it takes, you can apply now and find out more on our website.
