About the challenge

A Raleigh expedition is a challenging programme that empowers diverse groups of young people to contribute to sustainable development projects in some of the world’s poorest countries.


The four VolkerFitzpatrick staff will join expeditions to Borneo, Costa Rica and Tanzania as volunteer managers. Whilst in country, the volunteer managers help support, mentor and lead a group of young people as they work to improve rural communities.

Work the groups undertake include helping to build schools for isolated communities, installing gravity fed water facilities as well as environmental protection and research projects. Further details of the specific projects our staff will be working on will be available soon.
