Inspiring communities and young people around the world to create lasting change

We believe that when local communities and young people work side by side to create positive change, it empowers them. And it’s the energy and motivation of empowered people that creates lasting change.

Making our world a better place. That's what matters

Have an Adventure That Matters on a Raleigh Expedition this autumn. Create lasting change in remote communities, develop personally, and gain a greater understanding of the world.
