An unbelievable adventure

Come to an Information Event

Raleigh Expedition is an overseas volunteering programme taking place in Costa Rica, Nepal and Tanzania. Whether you are aged between 17-24 or 25 and over, we have the opportunity for you.

Why Raleigh?
  • Work at the heart of sustainable development projects in rural communities and national parks

  • Volunteer as part of an international team, make lifelong friendships and become part of a global community

  • A chance to immerse yourself by staying in a homestay with a local family, eating traditional home cooked meals and forming remarkable relationships with incredible people

  • Trek through unique and awe-inspiring landscapes, while developing your resilience and leadership skills

  • Build skills for future careers or study that will help you stand out from the crowd

When can you go?

Applications are now open for 4 – 10 week Expeditions to Nepal, Costa Rica and Tanzania departing in autumn 2018 and spring 2019.

Our most popular 10 week programme is designed so you can “do it all” and take part in three projects in one Expedition, but of course you can go for less time to accommodate your needs.
