Summary

Go Beyond a Gap Year

Live in the cloudforests of Borneo. Support indigenous Costa Rican communities. On a Raleigh expedition, no two days are ever the same. But every day, you'll be part of the Raleigh team. Once a Raleigh volunteer, always a Raleigh volunteer.

Raleigh Expeditions: a unique volunteer experience

Our expedition programme allows you to experience the world from a completely new perspective. You'll have the opportunity to do three very different projects.

Would you like the chance to live in beautiful, untouched wilderness? Whilst working alongside experts to preserve that environment for the future?

On your environment project, you'll live and work in some of the earth's most remote and vulnerable environments. You could be building a dam halfway up a mountain in Malaysian Borneo, sleeping in a hammock strung between two hardwood trees. You could be helping combat deforestation in the Nicaraguan rainforest. Whatever your project, we can guarantee that you'll be making a genuine difference.

You could then go on to experience cultures unlike any you've known before. On your community project you'll help tackle poverty, whilst becoming immersed in a new and fascinating culture. You might be living in homestays with indigenous communities in Borneo. You could support a Tanzanian village to access safe drinking water. You'll learn far more than you could as a tourist, and you'll have a lasting impact on the lives of community members.

You could finish your programme with the adventure of a lifetime. Push yourself far beyond your comfort zone, whilst knowing that we'll support you every step of the way. The adventure phase of your expedition is all about developing life-skills like leadership, teamwork and resilience. You and your team will trek up mountain peaks, through unspoiled forests and past dizzying waterfalls. Trek is where many of our volunteers forge friendships that last a lifetime.

Raleigh expeditions are challenging and exciting. They're a chance for you to gain skills that you can't learn at school, and experiences that are completely unique. They're also extremely safe and supportive.
