Looking for a new challenge? Eager to build skills for your future career and become a leader of change?

Volunteering on a Raleigh Expedition in Costa Rica, Tanzania or Nepal could be just what you need.

Join us in 2020 – we have a place for you on our 4, 5, 7 and 10 week Expeditions – Change Starts Here!

What is Raleigh Expedition?

Expedition is an international volunteering programme, open to all young people (aged 17 – 24) from around the world.

The programme engages volunteers in long-lasting change on Community and Environmental projects and an Adventure Leadership Trek. These projects help tackle environmental issues, access to education for all and alleviate poverty.

About the projects


  • Work with schools and community groups to change behaviours and raise awareness of issues such as handwashing and hygiene

  • Live and work alongside local people to help improve water systems, building water tanks, toilet blocks and handwashing stations


  • Support conservation in national parks or on reforestation projects

  • Help communities adapt to climate change and sustain rural resources

Adventure Leadership Trek

  • Trek through a variety of different terrains; rainforests, mountains and communities

  • Challenge yourself, develop your leadership skills and learn about the power of team effort

When can you go?

Applications are now open for 4, 5, 7 and 10 week Expeditions departing from February 2020.

The 10 week programme is the most immersive of our Expeditions. You will take part in three different projects, in three different locations with three different groups.
