For Raleigh it is young people volunteering their time and energy in their own country and globally that are the catalysts for change. In Costa Rica, by equipping them with the necessary skills, confidence and experiences, we have seen how they can become some of the most energetic and empowered partners in development. Working with indigenous communities as well as leading on environmental sustainability, young volunteers come to develop strong leadership and team building skills and experience invaluable changes within themselves.August 14, 2019
