Raleigh Friend Finder

Reconnect with Raleigh Friend Finder

Raleigh volunteers share life changing personal experiences and make positive impact in communities around the world. Memories and friends are made for life.

We developed the Raleigh Friend Finder service in response to many requests from past Raleigh volunteers to help them reconnect with old friends they have lost touch with.

How the service works

1. Log in to Raleigh Friend Finder

Login via our Netsuite portal using your email address and the password emailed to you.

2. Click on the Raleigh Friend Finder option

You will find it on the right hand side of the screen.

3. Search for your friend

You must enter a minimum of your friend’s first name, the programme country and placement code. The friend’s surname and friend’s country (where your friend now lives) fields are optional.

Once you have found your friend, click on Send Message to compose your email.

4. Write your message

Once you have composed your message, click ‘Send Message’. A pop-up will appear confirming that the message has been sent.

Once you message someone, they can respond using our system. This ensures that contact details are only shared by individuals when they are happy to do so.

Any problems?

If you receive an error message in response to your email stating “Error: Could not send message…because: null” that is because there is no email address on the system for the person you are trying to contact.

If you have any problems using Friend Finder or any comments for us please email alumni@raleighinternational.org
