Raleigh International
Adventure Project Manager

Raleigh International, a sustainable development charity, is recruiting adventure project managers for expeditions to Borneo, Costa Rica & Nicaragua and Tanzania.

If you are Mountain Leader qualified, have strong motivational skills and are passionate about youth development then we want to hear from you. As an adventure project manager you will be supporting teams of 12 - 14 young volunteers on the adventure phase of our expedition programme; helping to educate them about navigation and camp craft and challenging them to change their world for the better. You will always partner with another project manager to help facilitate the safe delivery of Raleigh's projects, working together to inspire and motivate your diverse team of volunteers.

Dates available: Malaysian Borneo, 8th June – 5th September 2014

The adventure project in Malaysian Borneo can involve trekking through rainforest as well as spending time on an island off the coast of Kota Kinabalu. Here you will have the option to qualify as a PADI scuba diver, or advance your existing diving skills. Once qualified you will use your new skills on a reef conservation project.

Costa Rica & Nicaragua, 17th June – 12th September 2014

This challenging phase will see you traversing the country and may take you from coast to coast in Costa Rica or to the summit of volcanoes in Nicaragua. Either way the adventure project is a great way to visit rarely frequented regions. Past groups have been welcomed into a different community every day, gaining invaluable insight into the local culture.

Tanzania, 8th June – 4th September 2014

On this phase you will visit some of the most beautiful and untouched areas of Tanzania; the Sothern Highlands, Iringa and North West of the spectacular Kilombera Valley have all hosted Raleigh trek groups. The trek will consolidate the young volunteers experience through the personal development involved in this challenging adventure.

Expeditions are 13 weeks in length. All the volunteer managers at Raleigh have to fundraise for their place on expedition, but we are able to offer generous bursaries for those adventure project managers with a Mountain Leadership qualification, meaning instead of the regular £1,950 your fundraising target would be £500.
Once on programme we provide all our adventure project managers' food, accommodation, internal transfers and comprehensive medical insurance.

Visit Raleigh's website to find out more or contact the programme leadership team, on programmeleadership@raleighinternational.org

Do not put it off. Make 2014 the year you begin to build a better future.
