Our company in a nutshell

We’re Raleigh International. We are a sustainable development charity powered by young volunteers like you who want to make the world a better place.

We run a life-changing overseas volunteering programme for 17-24 year olds called Raleigh Expeditions in Nepal, Costa Rica and Tanzania.

On a Raleigh Expedition, you and your international team will work together with local people on crucial community and environmental projects. You could be bringing clean water to a local community, talking to people about important sanitation issues or protecting some of the world’s most vulnerable environments. You will also get the opportunity to develop your teamwork and leadership skills on an exhilarating adventure trek across stunning landscapes.

Our Experience / Expertise:

We have more than 30 years’ experience delivering safe, structured Expeditions for young people. Since 1984, more than 40,000 people from around the world have volunteered on a Raleigh Expedition.

Safety is at the heart of everything we do. All of our programmes are undertaken in challenging environments, so to minimise the risks we focus on prevention.

This starts with selecting the appropriate countries to base our activities in, all the way through to educating and empowering our volunteers to understand and use risk management in everything they do. Our Safety Management Systems are robust, practical, and effective.

Our Vision:

Our vision is to build a global community working towards a sustainable future. We aim to do this by creating lasting change through youth.

Life at Raleigh International for interns & work placement students

Raleigh Expeditions offer you more than just the opportunity to travel the world making a difference. An Expedition equips you with skills and experiences relevant to a wide range of careers. It is sure to make your CV or personal statement shine out above the crowd. What’s more, many of our volunteers choose to stay in touch with Raleigh after their Expedition, either by volunteering or working for us in the UK.
