Raleigh International as a GAP year option
Career Choice: Posted 17-10-06 Deadline - No Deadline
Raleigh International is a youth development charity offering leadership development to 17-24 year old volunteers via worthwhile team-based project work overseas in an expedition environment. Raleigh International runs 8-10 programmes a year in Namibia, Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Malaysia with approximately 100 participants on each 10-week programme. Every participant enjoys a three week 'phase' on a community, environmental and adventure project, joining a new team of 12-15 young people from diverse backgrounds. Project work, in partnership with NGOs and Government departments, typically involves community infrastructure development such as school and medical facility construction, working in National Parks on infrastructure development and scientific research and a challenging adventurous trek. Participants gain valuable cultural, development and conservation awareness working side by side community members, NGO and National Park staff. Skills development focuses on leadership, team work, decision-making and problem solving and is actively facilitated by a team of 40 volunteer staff aged over 25 from a variety of professional backgrounds. Raleigh International provides all planning, safety management and expedition support with participants benefiting from Raleigh International's 22 years of expedition expertise. To date over 30,000 young people have joined the programmes including Prince William in 2000. Participants not only overcome the challenge of unfamiliar project work but also the challenge of being without the relative luxuries of home. Each participant meets a fundraising target covering costs and allowing Raleigh International to work with 'at risk' young people and those from the host country. For further information contact Andy Wahid, Country Director Raleigh International Australia/New Zealand at 0434 825669
