Youth Organisations, Universities and Gap Year Consultants

Throughout our history we have partnered with a variety of organisations who share our values of creating lasting change through youth. We are united in a common aim to encourage young people to engage in active citizenship and impact positive change in communities around the world.

On Expedition, we offer young people the chance to step out of their comfort zone, develop new skills and open their mind to new cultures and ways of life. We encourage young people to create innovative solutions that keep people healthy and safe from disease and create a cleaner, fairer, more sustainable future for the planet.

Gap Year/Educational consultants

Taking a gap year is an opportunity to take a break from a career or academic track, grow personally and give something back. Gap Year consultants recommend us because we offer an alternative to backpacking or voluntourism. Expedition is an opportunity to get involved in genuine charity work with a non-profit organisation that has over 35 years’ experience of working in sustainable development. We partner with consultants from across the world including the USA, Canada and mainland Europe, which makes our Expeditions truly international.


We have developed partnerships with several universities across the UK to offer students an experiential and immersive learning experience outside of the classroom. Raleigh programmes are based on experiential and reflective learning methodologies that are a powerful way of developing skills, knowledge, awareness and capabilities. Expedition aligns well with university and college work-based learning or personal and social development modules which is why students from a broad range of disciplines join us as part of their academic study.
