Change Starts Here

For more than 30 years' we have run Raleigh Expedition. You will help find solutions to tackling some of the world’s problems together. You’ll build memories and develop leadership and teamwork skills to apply to your future career and personal life. It’s a volunteer experience that you will never forget.


Expedition is a unique mixture of impactful projects, personal discovery and true adventure. Expedition brings young people together from all over the world to create change. Change in the communities you work in, change in the environments you live in and change in yourself. It’s a volunteer experience you will never forget.

Live and work alongside local communities in Costa Rica, Nepal and Tanzania. Help find solutions to tackle some of the world’s problems together. Take on new challenge and learn skills that will stay with you for life.


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.

Simply choose between volunteering in Nepal, Costa Rica and Tanzania and whether you want to volunteer for 4, 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.
