Raleigh International has launched a bursary award scheme offering young people the chance to take part in a life-changing expedition abroad.
The Raleigh Bursary Award is available to 100 people aged 17 -24 who can demonstrate that, without the funding, they would not be able to afford this opportunity. This gives young people the chance to enhance their employability skills.
Volunteers must have a sense of adventure and want to make a difference, not only to their lives but to others too. A Raleigh expedition combines community and environmental work in remote communities with a challenging adventure phase. It is a focused training and development programme that challenges participants physically and mentally, and teaches them to work in teams with people from different countries and socio-economic backgrounds to learn the value of volunteering.
