Raleigh International

London, United Kingdom

Recommend to a friend:

Raleigh International is a sustainable development charity. We harness the passion and energy of young people to effect positive change in sustainable development. Our work is delivered through young people and is a collaboration between local communities, partners and volunteers from a wide range of backgrounds, nationalities and life stages.

What can we offer Escapees?

Raleigh International is a sustainable development charity, which recruits volunteers to join international volunteering programmes. Volunteers work on sustainable projects focusing on providing access to safe water and sanitation, protecting vulnerable environments and building resilient communities.

We can offer Escapees the chance to use their experience to drive sustainable and worthwhile change in partnership with developing communities.

As a Raleigh volunteer you will challenge yourself in an international setting. It’s inevitable that you will gain insight into the host culture and your own strengths and weaknesses, at the same time as developing new skills and knowledge useful for boosting your career or helping you find that new direction.

International Citizen Service

International Citizen Service (ICS) is the UK’s leading global volunteering programme. Fully funded by the UK government, ICS offers you the opportunity to work with communities in developing countries, making a real difference to the lives of people overseas, and also more locally, in the UK.

Raleigh International, a sustainable development charity, offers two different ICS opportunities for team leaders (aged over 23) and volunteers (aged 18 – 25).

Raleigh ICS is a 12 ½ week programme for team leaders. It focuses on addressing key development issues such as water and sanitation or natural resource management. Team leaders are also responsible for facilitating the personal development of the young volunteer team; supporting them to grow into agents of change.

Raleigh ICS Entrepreneur harnesses volunteers’ interest in social enterprise and their experience of business to grow local businesses, which in turn helps to create jobs, provide skills, and contribute positively to social, economic and environmental development. Team leaders will commit to two 12 ½ week placements back to back in order to be involved in ICS Entrepreneur.

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 aged 25-75 as a volunteer manager.

The volunteer manager team consists of a wide range of roles including project managers, adventure project managers, Spanish interpreters, communications officers, logistics coordinators, photographers, administrators and medics. The expeditions last for either 8 or 13 weeks for volunteer managers, and are popular among people wanting to develop leadership skills, 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.
