Description

Adventurous? Great leader? Looking for a new challenge? Volunteer on a Raleigh Expedition as an Adventure Project Manager and use your mountain leader or trekking experience to motivate young volunteers.

We are looking for people who are Mountain Leader qualified or who have extensive trekking experience or other outdoor activities to lead our Expedition adventure phase through the trekking paradise of Nepal. As an Adventure Project Manager you will work alongside another Project Manager to lead groups of 12-14 young people.

As a result of our relationships with national park authorities, Raleigh’s volunteer teams often have access to areas of the country that are usually closed to tourists. You may also have the chance to work on one of our rural community project sites, helping to deliver the sustainable aims of the project whilst facilitating the personal development of a group of around 12 volunteers. You will often be working in remote areas, so it is essential that you have experience working independently.

Expedition dates:

Nepal: 25 January – 22 April

As a charity we encourage all of our volunteers to fundraise for Raleigh International before the Expedition, however we offer different levels of bursaries for people who have mountain leader qualifications. The fundraising targets for a 13-week Expedition APM role start at £1,350.

Once you are in country Raleigh will cover the cost of your food, accommodation, training and preparation, specialist equipment, and insurance (excluding personal belongings cover). In addition to this target, you will need to fund your own flights to and from the expedition country, vaccinations, personal kit and a visa, if required.

Once you have applied via the Raleigh International website you will be invited to one of our Expedition Discovery Weekends.

Apply today for this life changing opportunity and spend 13 weeks in a new and exciting environment.
