Raleigh International is a youth-driven development charity with more than 37 years of expertise in working with young people.
We’re holding development projects to account using technology, developing the skills to run behaviour change campaigns and reducing the impact of climate change on communities most at risk. Youth-driven change is getting things done!
We believe young people everywhere are able to change the world. So, we create youth-driven change that lasts. We empower young people with the skills, experience and connections to be leaders of change.
One of the ways we do this is through Raleigh Expedition, an international volunteering program open to all and engaging young people from around the world.
This service learning program engages volunteers (aged 17-24) in creating long-lasting change through hands-on projects that tackle environmental issues, access to education for all, and alleviate poverty.
Expedition is delivered in Costa Rica and Nepal for 4, 5, 6, 7 and 10 weeks throughout the year.
Raleigh Expedition is one of the first UK programs to be accredited by the Gap Year Association (GYA) and recognized by TeenLife as a Top 15 most popular Gap Program in 2020.
