About us

Raleigh International is a sustainable development charity that recruits volunteers to join international volunteering programmes. Raleigh recruits young people (aged 17-25) to volunteer on international volunteering programmes as well as volunteer managers and team leaders (aged 23 - 75). Volunteers work on sustainable projects focusing on providing access to safe water and sanitation, protecting vulnerable environments and building resilient communitites.


International Citizen Service

International Citizen Service (ICS) is the UK’s leading global volunteering programme, funded by the Department for International Development. The programme offers young people the opportunity to do voluntary development work abroad. Raleigh International, a youth and sustainable development charity, recruits volunteers (aged 18-25) and team leaders (aged 23 or over) to manage their ICS programmes in Nicaragua, Tanzania and India.

International Citizen Service (ICS) is a unique opportunity for you to work with communities in developing countries, making a real difference to the lives of people overseas, and more locally in the UK.

Whilst overseas with Raleigh ICS team leaders manage teams of UK and in-country volunteers contributing to development projects that tackle issues around education, health, livelihoods, strengthening civil society, natural resources and the environment. Activities will cover infrastructure building, resource development, peer to peer education, action research, awareness raising and training. You will work with local NGO partners, trades people and community groups to ensure projects are sustainable and the impact will be felt for a long time after the projects are completed. Each overseas placement lasts 12 ½ weeks for team leaders. 


Raleigh Expeditions

Raleigh runs international expeditions in Borneo, Costa Rica & Nicaragua and Tanzania. Volunteers from many different backgrounds and nationalities complete sustainable community development, environmental conservation and adventure projects. Anyone aged 17-25 can join as a venturer, or volunteers aged 25-75 can join as a volunteer manager.

The volunteer manager team consists of a wide range of roles from trek leaders, project managers, communications officers, finance officers, logistics coordinators and medics. The expeditions last for either 8 or 13 weeks for volunteer managers, and are popular among people taking a career break, retired or just wanting to take some time out to do something different and make a positive contribution to young people and the communities in our host countries.
