Lead or support

Looking for something totally different? Something that changes lives?

You’ve come to the right place…

This is a Raleigh expedition. It’s an exciting opportunity for you to work alongside and support young people to empower communities to create lasting change. We need people like you, people who believe in the energy of youth. People who want a new challenge, to inspire and help lead an expedition.

An expedition is a chance for young people from around the world to come together and create the future they want. For you, it’s a unique opportunity to use your skills and experience in roles based either on project site or in the Raleigh country office (what we call field base). Roles demand varying levels of skills and experience.

You could be living and working in a remote community, amongst some of the world’s most breath-taking landscapes; helping protect natural environments; or leading a trek through areas of a national park that are inaccessible to tourists.

Don’t fancy a leadership role on a project site? You could be supporting our expeditions from our local offices; making sure volunteers have the equipment they need; providing medical assistance or bringing the expedition to life though photography or words.

An expedition, in three words?

Challenging

If you’re seeking a new challenge, then you’re who were looking for. Not sure? Step outside your comfort zone and find out.

A Raleigh expedition is fun and hard work. It can also be life-changing for the communities, young volunteers and you. You will have a lasting influence on the young volunteers’ personal development, and your own. Together you’ll learn new skills and do things you didn’t think you were capable of

Inspiring

Not only will you inspire the young volunteers you are supporting, but we hope you will be inspired by the whole experience too. This will be a new working environment, a new 9 – 5, a new daily routine and you’ll discover new ways of approaching some of the world’s challenges.

Impactful

Last year over 100,000 people from around the world benefitted from our work. By working alongside each other, young people and communities are inspired to create lasting change. We work to increase people’s access to safe water, improve sanitation and protect natural environments in areas that need it most. We build stronger communities, enabling them to be more resilient to challenges; all whilst equipping young people with the skills and leadership to build a sustainable future.

For us to make these changes, we rely on passionate and dedicated volunteer leaders to drive this ambition.
