Raleigh International : Volunteering Overseas
Sustainable development charity Raleigh International runs life-changing Expeditions to some of the most remote places on the planet. Our Expeditions provide exposure to different people, new cultures, situations, and environments. Raleigh’s sustainable development projects are varied and structured, and run by knowledgeable and committed staff.
Adventure is at the heart of it. Volunteers live in a homestay with a local family, work on sustainable projects in remote communities or national parks with an international team, and trek through unique and stunning landscapes. Volunteers are challenged to achieve things they didn’t know they were capable of and return home with the power to create lasting change.
Raleigh’s work is delivered through young people. We need volunteers aged 17-24 to help deliver our sustainable development programmes. We also have volunteer manager positions available for those aged 25 and over.
You can join an Expedition for 4, 5, 7 or 10 weeks in Tanzania, Nepal, Malaysian Borneo and Nicaragua & Costa Rica. Expeditions take place three times a year, starting in February & March, June & July and October & November.
For more than 30 years, Raleigh has run volunteer programmes for young people. Last year more than 100,000 people from around the world benefitted from our programmes.
