Raleigh Expeditions

Make a difference volunteering in remote communities around the world

Raleigh Expedition isn’t like other volunteer programmes. Our volunteers work in international teams at the heart of meaningful community and environmental projects and take part in an adrenaline-fuelled trek in some of the most incredible areas of the world. You will be challenged, have an adventure and create lasting change.

We run Expeditions throughout the year for 4, 5, 7 or 10-weeks in Malaysian Borneo, Nepal, Nicaragua & Costa Rica and Tanzania.

Why volunteer on 1 project overseas when you can do 3?
Why we do it

We support and encourage you to have an impact where it matters most. Last year over 100,000 people from around the world benefitted from our programmes. Our Expedition volunteers help empower local communities; by improving people’s access to safe water and sanitation, building stronger communities and protecting the world’s resources. This is your chance to create change in the communities we work in and develop skills for yourself. Read our 2016 Impact Report.

If you like variety then you’ve come to the right place

Expeditions include different people, projects, locations and challenges. There will be people like you and people from different backgrounds and cultures, including local volunteers from host countries. Together you’ll be a team with a common aim; to bring energy and inspiration to create the world that you want.
