Over the last quarter of a century Raleigh International has built the expertise to run high quality volunteering programmes across the world, helping develop young people's key personal and social skills.
Raleigh has been recognised for its great work by both the government and educational institutions:
- The Department for International Development (DfID) has provided funding for Raleigh's Global Ambassadors programme, aimed at building a global community of people passionate about international development and working towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals
- The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) provided funding which enabled Raleigh to offer the Raleigh Graduate Bursary Award providing recent graduates who looking to gain new experiences and become global citizens the opportunity to go on expedition
- Raleigh teamed up with Birkbeck College in a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) between 2009-11 to develop the Postgraduate Certificate in International Field Leadership for our Volunteer Managers/ Team Leaders. This qualification gives the opportunity for those volunteers to gain accreditation for the experiential learning experience of their Raleigh expeditions.
- The Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) has provided funding for Raleigh's preparation residential courses in England for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds
