Careers at Raleigh International

We are on a mission to inspire, empower, and equip the next generation of global leaders and active global citizens. We do this by running impactful and immersive volunteering abroad expeditions to Costa Rica and South Africa.

We have worked with young people around the world for almost 40 years. More than 55,000 young people from over 100 countries have worked with us, creating a global community dedicated to supporting youth-led action.

We want a fair, inclusive, and green world where young people confront the planet’s most urgent crises. We exist to ignite youth-led action that creates solutions to the world’s most urgent problems. But while young people demand change now, they do not always know how to take action. We support young people by connecting them with the skills, networks, platforms and experiences to lead action on the change they demand. We are creating a generation of young leaders who are taking action now. We work globally to promote the role of young people in decision making and civil society, creating meaningful youth employment and enterprise, protecting vulnerable environments and combating climate change, and ensuring the right to safe water and sanitation.
