Raleigh International Charity Profile

Back in 1978 when Colonel John Blashford-Snell and HRH Prince Charles started Operation Drake, they had a vision. They wanted to give young people a chance to explore the world and by doing so discover their potential as leaders and members of a team working together to make a difference. We still hold true these values today with our two commitments.

We're committed to inspiring people from all walks of life, ages and nationalities, involving them more deeply with people, places, communities and challenges and empowering them to be all they can be. Our second commitment is working in partnership with local communities to make a much needed difference to their lives.

Raleigh is not just about an expedition; it's about being part of a community of like-minded people. Ordinary people who want to do something extraordinary with their lives, make a difference in the world and new friends along the way. Our vision is to inspire a generation to be all that they can be; to awaken a sense of life-purpose and belonging, and unite them as part of a global community who can work together to rise to the challenges of the world we live in.

As a charity, we raise funds to make our expeditions the best possible experience for the volunteers and the local communities. In this role, we act as a catalyst for change, bringing local communities together, sometimes for the first time as one team and giving them the resources and motivation to achieve sustainable development. To do this we work in partnership with local communities, non-governmental organisations and governments in the host countries, following the Millennium Development Goals where we can.

Raleigh International Volunteer Information

Whether you've just come back from one of our expeditions, have volunteered before or have no experience with Raleigh, we always welcome passionate, dedicated volunteers to give their time.

Volunteers can help out at our residential training workshops, open events, recruitment fairs, university of school presentations in the UK. In addition to this, Raleigh's fourth challenge is about continuing to make an impact on the lives of others after expedition. With this in mind, we have created a number of opportunities with project partners with which you can get involved, including conservation activities, music festivals, social research and our youth forum.
We run a number of different workshops, each with their own set of challenges and different set of skills requirements, from volunteers facilitators to group assessors and logistics managers. We rely on the support and hard work of our volunteers to make our workshops the success they are. Whether you've just come back from one of our expeditions, have volunteered before or have no experience with Raleigh we look forward to hearing from you. We are able to cover all travel costs, but the maximum cover for travel costs will vary depending on which residential workshop you attend
