Fundraising is not essential, but if you choose to fundraise we offer lots of support to help you do that. We have supported thousands of young people to reach their fundraising target.
All our projects are driven by the needs of the communities we work in. If the community does not have 100% ownership over the projects we do, we simply do not do them. Our close partnerships and relationships on the ground, with community leaders, local NGO's, and Governmental departments, ensure that our projects are necessary and impactful.
Joining a Raleigh Expedition in Costa Rica is a truly life-changing experience that will not only see you take part in pertinent community and environmental projects, but will equip you with new skills and experiences that will stay with you for a lifetime.
Immersing yourself with local communities in one the worlds most biodiverse countries you will work alongside local NGO's, communities, and Park Rangers to preserve vulnerable natural resources, improve access to education for indigenous communities, and take part in a once in a lifetime trek across a truly stunning landscape.
Raleigh expeditions are a truly immersive cultural experience that combine adventure, personal development, and impactful projects to create truly life-enhancing journeys. Do it for you, do it for the planet!
- Our programs run for 4, 7, and 10 weeks throughout the year, so you can join during your gap year or in the summer.
- Be with people your age: Apart from team leaders and staff, you will be grouped with people aged 17-24 from all around the world. Getting to share your adventure with a group of like-minded people the same age as you is unique to Raleigh.

So far we have planted over 100,000 trees, given 900,000 people access to clean water & sanitation, all while transforming the lives of over 55,000 young people through the power of volunteering abroad.
Why don't you become part of a global community dedicated to supporting youth-led action on the worlds most important issues?
Raleigh International is all about supporting, equipping, and inspiring young people to create and make change long after Expedition is over. From creating sustainable start-ups, to challenging gender inequality and calling for action on the climate emergency and human rights, the skills you learn on Raleigh will stay with you for the rest of your life.
If we are going to finally overcome poverty and injustice, find sustainable ways to protect our planet, and achieve the UN Global Goals, young people must be the ones taking the lead and driving the solutions.
