Welcome to Raleigh International, Ireland Youth Development Charity (Raleigh Ireland)
Raleigh Ireland is a Raleigh Group for Raleigh International Charity (UK).
Raleigh International aims to help young people from all backgrounds and nationalities to discover their full potential by working together on challenging community, environmental and adventure projects in developing countries around the world. We offer 10 week (with a 7 week shorter option) and 5 week expeditions to Borneo, Costa Rica & Nicaragua, India and Tanzania. Young people aged 17 to 24 are welcome as expedition volunteers. If you are 25+, you are also welcome as volunteer staff.
After experiencing the
benefits of a Raleigh International expedition, and seeing the
demand for such an organisation in Ireland, a group of Irish
volunteers began the process of developing a Raleigh division in
Ireland. In the two years we spent trying to build Raleigh
Ireland we experienced huge interest in what Raleigh
International offers. Although as a volunteer group we
could not match the resources we had with what we wanted to
deliver as a viable organisation in Ireland. Whilst we still
believe there is a need to have an organisation such as Raleigh
Ireland, we have decided to discontinue our efforts to establish
such an organisation.
Raleigh International has always welcomed applications from Irish volunteers and will continue to do so. We would ask that if you do have any queries or if you are interested in participating in a Raleigh International expedition please contact our Head Office in the U.K. directly, details below. If you would ever be interested in working with Raleigh Ireland in the future should we decide to start our organisation again, please join our mailing list and we will contact you with details as soon as we are ready.
Thank you for your interest in Raleigh International and Raleigh Ireland.
