Volunteer in Central America

Welcome, Bienvenidos to Nicaragua & Costa Rica! These two bright and colourful countries make up an exciting part of the world – Central America! Nicaragua is famed for its stunning landscapes including Lake Nicaragua which is one of the largest in the world. It is also incredibly diverse and home to over 70 ecosystems. Neighbouring Costa Rica features mountains and volcanoes and contains 5% of the world’s biodiversity within its borders. Both countries are known for their friendly welcoming people. Pura vida!

What will I be doing?

A Raleigh expedition is a unique volunteering opportunity for 17 to 24 year olds combining Community and Environment volunteering with an exhilarating adventure trek. We can't tell you the specifics of what you'll do day to day but you will have an adventure worth sharing. It won't be easy, but it will be rewarding. This is the adventure of a liftime!

Community: You could be working on a water and sanitation project in northern Nicaragua – bringing clean water to rural communities. You could also help with school building in a rural area of Costa Rica.

Environment: Call one of Costa Rica’s 12 national parks home. You and your team will be working to protect it. You may be building pathways or planting trees. Some of our projects involve promoting sustainable lives in local communities.

Adventure: Experience the ultimate adventure trek! For 19 days, you and your team will be trekking up to 12km a day, camping out every night and learning about the communities you pass by. Everyone will get the opportunity to lead the group for the day developing your teamwork and leadership skills.

Why Raleigh?

On expedition you’ll make friends from around the world and develop skills for life. Raleigh International is a sustainable development charity with over 30 years’ experience. You’ll be joining a community of over 40,000 people who have volunteered with us before so you can be sure you’ll be in safe hands.

“Once you have volunteered on a Raleigh expedition you become part of a wider family, a network that extends across the world. You could meet anyone who has been on an expedition and instantly connect with them. For although your experiences of a country, projects and people will be unique, together you share an understanding of how Raleigh changes lives, not least your own.” – Amy, volunteered in Nicaragua & Costa Rica
