Our Expeditions take place three times a year, starting in February & March, June & July and October & November.
Raleigh Expedition isn’t like other volunteer programmes. We run life-changing Expeditions to some of the most remote places on the planet. A four, seven or 10-week Expedition provides exposure to different people, new cultures, situations, and environments. Adventure is at the heart of it.
Volunteers live in a homestay with a local family, work on sustainable projects in remote communities or national parks with an international team, and trek through unique and stunning landscapes.
Volunteers are challenged to achieve things they didn’t know they were capable of and return home with the power to create lasting change.

What we can offer you
Volunteering on a Raleigh Expedition gives you the chance to get involved with a variety of projects. Bring your determination to a community development project, learn about protecting vulnerable environments on an environmental conservation project and challenge yourself on our tough adventure phase.
You can join an Expedition for 4, 5, 7 or 10 weeks. Our Expeditions take place three times a year, starting in February & March, June & July and October & November.
If you volunteer on a 10 week programme you will take part in all three phases of the programme: community, environment and adventure. Volunteers on a 7 week Expedition will complete two of the three phases. Those on a 5 week Expedition will either do a community or environment project and a tough, adventure challenge. We only offer the 4 and 5 week Expeditions once a year, starting in June or July.
